Happy World Vegan Day!

It has been 68 years since The Vegan Soci­ety was formed and the term “vegan” was coined in Hol­born, Lon­don. We’re sure glad it hap­pened! Other name ideas included “dairy­ban”, “vitan”, “benevore”, “sani­vore” and “beau­mangeur”. Luck­ily, the word “vegan” was cho­sen by Don­ald Wat­son to describe those who not only abstained from eat­ing meat, but also did not con­sume any ani­mal prod­ucts such as eggs, milk, or cheese. If he hadn’t decided on that name on Novem­ber 1st 1944, today I might be say­ing Happy World beau­manguer day! or Happy sani­vore day!

Regard­less of the name, it is the idea and the lifestyle that we cel­e­brate today and lucky for us, today is just the kick off for World Vegan month!

Here’s what fel­low veg­ans around the world are doing to celebrate!

In Toronto, the TVA (Toronto Veg­e­tar­ian Asso­ci­a­tion) is gear­ing up for some awe­some events includ­ing a visit from the leg­endary Dr. Neal Barnard on Nov 10th.

So Happy World Vegan day! and Happy World Vegan month! Let’s spread the mes­sage, spread the love and cel­e­brate this com­pas­sion­ate and pas­sion­ate lifestyle.

Oy Vegan!
