Last year, Steven and I started a new tradition. Instead of spending a huge amount of time & money in the creation of holiday cards, we decided that we would donate the money spent on the cards (plus a little extra) to a charity of our choice.
Happy World Animal Day to all animals today, especially my cute pet rabbits Joey & Robby.
World Animal Day is celebrated each year on October 4th and has been since 1931, when it was started in Florence, Italy during a convention of ecologists.
On World Animal Day, animal life in all its forms is celebrated and throughout the day various events are planned all over the globe.
Coincidentally, October 4th also marks the feast day of Francis of Assisi, the patron saint of animals, though World Animal Day isn’t bound to the celebration of a Christian saint anymore and is thus celebrated by animal lovers of all beliefs & backgrounds.

I spent the day out with friends in Ghent yesterday and came home to a rather big surprise! We have a new bunny friend for Joey in the house.
