Ever wondered if this Wednesday would end up being National Pig Day? This holiday was first initiated and founded by sisters Ellen Stanley and Mary Lynne Rave in the year 1972 in Carolina! This is because, it is hard to not find a pig in Carolina where barbeque is the king of business, and of course, Carolinians have an immense love for barbeque. The sisters just wanted to create awareness on the importance of pigs and show that they are just fine swine! Do you think you know all about pigs? Here are some cool facts!
