This weekend, peta2 staffers and Street Teamers around the world celebrated the BEST holiday ever invented, “Hug a Vegan” Day!

Some celebrated by showing off their vegan pride:

Others posed with our printable signs:

And others decided to reinvent the art of hugging:

How did I celebrate this magical day? I had an AWESOME time hanging out with peta2 staffers, Street Teamers from the L.A. area, and a beautiful plate of nachos at peta2’s first “Hug a Vegan” Day party at the Bob Barker Building (peta2’s office). Check out some of the things you missed:

Tofu toss and other games:

Yep, we literally threw tofu at each other, and it’s officially my favorite thing to do with tofu (right after making tofu scramble and peanut butter pudding).

Vegan nacho bar with vegan queso from Food for Lovers:

And last but not least—GIANT vegan cookies:

Om Nom Nom (isn’t that the cutest name ever?!) donated some of its super-delish vegan cookies for our “Hug a Vegan” Day party, and they were a HUGE hit.

    Id love to try the red velvet cookies. My hug a vegan day went soo great. I hung flyers all around my school and passed out stickers. everyone that hugged me got a “I hugged a vegan” sticker and I got my fellow vegans and vegetarians to wear stickers. the whole day was a huge success!
