Today is September 29th…know what that means? That means we’re only 2 days away from World Vegetarian Day!!!

In case you haven’t heard, World Vegetarian Day is celebrated on October 1st and is without a doubt one of my all-time favorite holidays. Created by the North American Vegetarian Society in 1977 to “promote the joy, compassion and life-enhancing possibilities of vegetarianism”, World Vegetarian Day kicks off Vegetarian Awareness Month which runs through October and ends on World Vegan Day on November 1st.

Each year on World Vegetarian Day I ask friends, family and pretty much anyone else who might listen, to support the vegetarian in their life and go meat-free for 24 hours. Last year I managed to get 75 people to join me on my quest and this year (thanks to the invent of Facebook) I’ve already received support from a whopping 215 people!!

Here at Ecorazzi we know that stars like Pamela Anderson, Tobey Maguire, Pink, James Cromwell and many others will be rocking the tofu on the first, but how are YOU going to celebrate? Chime in and tell us how you’ll celebrate World Vegetarian Day. Oh, and don’t forget to check back on October 1st for a special holiday editorial. Happy vegging!!

    I’m celebrating it by eating some Ms. Lil’s Raw Cheesecake Lover’s Cheesecake (the best tasting vegan / raw dessert on the face of the planet) and seeing Echo & the Bunnymen at Radio City.

    Hmm. Maybe I’ll do my special vegan tacos. Yum.

    I am with you….will see what I can do to get some support here down under (I am in Sydney). I am sure my kids will be thrilled with Pizza for dinner in the middle of the week. xxx
