World Vegan Day History
In 1944, in the UK, Donald Watson took the first and last letters of the word "vegetarian," and created the word "vegan" to indicate being vegetarian from beginning to end - (not only not eating any animals, but also not eating any products that come from animals, not using any products that come from animals, and simply not using animals for our human purposes - true Ahimsa, "dynamic harmlessness").
Certainly there were those who had such beliefs and lived by such committed values long before 1944, but, up until that time, there was not a single word with such meaning.
Watson entered the word into the lexicon and also registered the first Vegan Society, in Britain, on November 1, 1944.
Thus, World Vegan Day, a special annual holiday celebrating vegan living, is celebrated on November 1st each year.
It is celebrated with festivals around the country and all around the world.
Please come join us at LA's celebration of World Vegan Day!

LA's annual World Vegan Day celebration is sponsored each year by Veg Kids.
