I don’t know about you, but my arms still hurt from all the hugging during “Hug a Vegetarian” Day this past Friday! It’s no secret that this is my favorite holiday—you get to eat yummy vegan food, speak up for animals, and score a bunch of free hugs! What could be better?
With so many vegetarians and vegans all around the world (including the peta2 staff and Street Teamers at PETA’s Los Angeles office), I wasn’t the only one celebrating by getting my huggin’ on! There were so many people that we got more than 150,000 pledges for hugs this year! Now do you understand why my arms still hurt?! Check out the pics below!
How did you celebrate? Be sure to submit your photos for points!

I'm 15 years old. I love to juggle, bowl, do stage crew, play the piano, and run. I also love to help people out, and give back to the community as much as I can. I am part of a juggling organization that teaches children with disabilities, cancers, and those who are blind how to juggle. I volunteer at an animal shelter in Princeton. I am currently a sophomore in high school right now. Extracurricular activities that I do are: Winter/Spring Track, Stage Crew, and Cross Country. I have a pet dog, his name is Dash, and he is a long-haired Dachshund.
