World Vegetarian Day – Vegetarian Marathon 2011

 

Couldn’t make it in time to blog about this inaugural Vegetarian Marathon organized by Pranic Healing Singapore, in celebration of World Vegetarian Day on 1 October. Seems like it is like Amazing Race-kind-of event whereby a vegetarian contestant pairs up with a non-vegetarian friend and visit about 15 vegetarian eateries in town.

Well, as vegetarians ourselves, we’ll make sure we blog about such events in time next time when we come across them!

As an October baby (today happens to be my birthday!) and a vegetarian as well, it is exciting for me to know that World Vegetarian Day on October 1 initiates the month of October as Vegetarian Awareness Month, and ends with November 1 with World Vegan Day.

October 2 is also  World Farm Animals Day (WFAD) or World Day for Farm(ed) Animals and October 16 is United Nations World Food Day (often a time of global reckoning with issues of human food security).

Let’s celebrate and remember the reverence for life of all beings.
