Traditions and a Vegan Thanksgiving!

Traditions and a Vegan Thanksgiving!

Ah yes, we Canadians eh!, always jumping to the front of the line. Not only did we celebrate our Thanksgiving more than a month before our fellow North Americans to the south, truth be told, many years ago we actually borrowed the holiday and tradition from them. But what is a holiday or two among friends? So, since we have already celebrated this day of Thankfulness and Gratitude, I thought I would share a few ideas that may inspire those …

A Vegan talks Turkey and Thanksgiving

A Vegan talks Turkey and Thanksgiving

Correct me if I am wrong, but I believe that the upcoming Canadian Thanksgiving on Monday, October 12th and the American Thanksgiving on November 26th  are  North American traditions based on the history of the settlers, explorers, pilgrims who came to (invaded) this continent centuries ago. The Canadian tradition dates back to 1578, while the American one to 1621. Both modern day traditions celebrate the bringing in of the harvest. For the sake of clarity, I …

Easter, Rebirth and Death for Profit Industries

Easter, Rebirth and Death for Profit Industries

Holy smokes! This is my second Easter as a blogger for all of our furry, and not so furry friends caught in all of our death for profit industries. And yes, all of  these industries  cause the death of the individual, whether it be for egg or dairy or flesh, for farmed and wild fur, for wool, silk and leather,  for vivisection and even for entertainment. One might think that the beings used for entertainment are not slated for murder …

My Vegan Advocacy Goal for 2015

My goodness, as I sit down to write the first post of 2015, I am keenly aware that it has been two weeks since my final post of 2014. That is the longest time I have been away from my readers and from writing for this website. Over the holiday period I gained four new subscribers.  I would like to welcome you. It is always so gratifying to know that I am on the right track and that people find …

Dialogues About Vegan Life, One Year Later.

Dialogues About Vegan Life, One Year Later.

I wasn’t sure that I would have the time to write two posts before Xmas, but with one just published, here I sit, in front of my computer, thinking about my final thoughts of  2014.  It is true, nearly a year has gone by since  I first published, on my fledgling blog, my dialogues about vegan life. I am having a  website Veganniversary of sorts, even though I am not sure how significant this is.

So many devoted advocates for nonhuman …

This Vegan’s “Peace On Earth”.

This Vegan’s “Peace On Earth”.

I am sure that you have noticed how prominent and important food  is in  our various celebrations. Easter is about chocolate and the Easter Bunny and roasted pig (ham or pork). Thanksgiving features the poor turkey who is enslaved, mistreated, killed and roasted and a la Kinged to the tune of 19 million in the US and 5 million here in Canada. And then there is Xmas. More turkeys are sacrificed along with all the other usual suspects …
