World Vegan Day Celebration

  • Nov 1, 2013 · 6:30 PM
  • Kids Make A Difference Headquarters

In 1944, in the UK, Donald Watson took the first and last letters of the word "vegetarian," and created the word "vegan" to indicate being vegetarian from beginning to end - (not only not eating any animals, but also not eating any products that come from animals, not using any products that come from animals, and simply not using animals for our human purposes - true Ahimsa, "dynamic harmlessness").

Certainly there were those who had such beliefs and lived by such committed values long before 1944, but, up until that time, there was not a single word with such meaning.

Watson entered the word into the lexicon and also registered the first Vegan Society, in Britain, on November 1, 1944.

Thus, World Vegan Day, a special annual holiday celebrating vegan living, is celebrated on November 1st each year.

It is celebrated with festivals around the country and all around the world.

    The World Vegan Day Celebration event was fabulous! The food was amazing, Fumani entertained us with her beautiful voice, Andy did a great job putting it all together and gave an informative talk on how Vegan Day started, etc. and it was such a pleasure being around and meeting such nice people!
