I first learned about International Rabbit Day a few years ago. Someone sent me a link to the website Holiday Insights with information about how the day started and the intent to promote the well-being of rabbits. It is usually set for the Fourth Saturday or Sunday in September. Holiday Insights has the date listed for Saturday this year which would be the 27th.
I see that House Rabbit Society is planning on Sunday the 28th for observing International Rabbit Day. I say why not make it an International Rabbit Weekend and focus some attention on our big eared friends for both days.
Here is one suggestion for observing the day/s: “Celebrate this special day with your pet rabbit. Learn a little more about him and how to properly care for his needs. If you don’t have a pet, maybe today is the day to get a pet rabbit! ” Visit the Holiday Insights page for more information on the meaning and origin of International Rabbit Day.
