So of course, this means (from wikipedia) on this day, animal life in all its forms is celebrated, and special events are planned on locations all over the globe. 4 October was originally chosen for World Animal Day because it is the feast day of Francis of Assisi, a nature lover and patron saint of animals. Numerous churches throughout the world observe the Sunday closest to 4 October with a Blessing for the Animals.
Which I find hilarious since according toCatholic teachings animals have no souls so why would you bother to bless them? Go Figure. Religion isn't supposed to be logical, right?
Since it was started, it has grown past the xtian tie-in and is now celebrated by all sorts of folks all over the world.
Here in my world, where my views and opinions are what count, I have decided to put a fun twist on the event...
So let's get on with it! Let's celebrate animals!
