Many animal lovers put their pets in the spotlight today. Give your dog an extra bone or take him for a long walk. Give your cat a nice new toy (read cardboard box 😉) or an extra animal treat. Because today it’s World Animal Day. Let’s celebrate!
Animal Day has been celebrated in the Netherlands on October 4 since 1930. Did you know that this day isn’t a random choice? During an international Animal Protection Congress in Vienna in 1929, it was decided to declare the anniversary of Saint Francis of Assisi to be World Animal Day. Francis of Assisi (1181-1226) founded the monastic order of the Franciscans or Friars Minor in his time. According to the legends, Van Assisi preached not only to humans but also to animals and had many conversations with members of the “animal kingdom” (how great would it be if you could actually talk to your pet?). On October 4, people in several countries around the world can go to church with their animals to be blessed. Nowadays, Animal Day is no longer just a Christian celebration, but above all, an excellent day to give your pet a little bit of extra attention.
