National Suckling Pig Day
Date When Celebrated : This holiday is always on December 18
Who would have ever thought we'd ever be celebrating a pig of any kind or for any reason. And, not just any pig, specifically a suckling pig.
National Suckling Pig Day is a mid-December day enjoy and remember. While everyone is running around, frantically preparing for the holidays, mom or grandma is busy in the kitchen. She has taken a break from the hubbub to cook a fancy meal.... a roasted suckling pig. As you read this, how many of you thought to yourselves.... "Yeah, right... fat chance that will happen."
In case you didn't know.... a "Suckling Pig", also called "Sucking Pig", is a young piglet that has not yet been weaned from it's mother.
If you are too busy to roast a pig today, take a well deserved break. Go out to a local restaurant and order a roasted suckling pig dinner. It's quicker and easier!
Have a happy National Suckling Pig Day!!!

We found absolutely no factual information on National Suckling Pig Day. We speculate that a family or corporate holiday party just in advance of Christmas, was the origin of this special day.
There was some reference to this as a "National Day". This author can not imagine congress authorizing this as a national day. Can you!? Most food related holidays are called "National". However, we found no congressional records or presidential proclamation.
