Bringing in the Year of the Pear

February 18 marks Chinese new years and the beginning of the Year of the Pig. The pig is a “shy character who prefers to work quietly behind the scenes. When others despair, he/she is often there to offer support (1)” The recreational vegan has decided to celebrate this event by nominating a fruit of the year that shares similar characteristics.

The pear. Seemingly always ripe, it’s there for you when you need it most. It’s sweet, remarkably juicy and delicious. But the pear is not flashy. Often mishaped, it’s not a symbol of seduction (e.g., the strawberry). Nor is it ever placed at the level of dessert worthiness (e.g., apple pie, banana shake). It truly is a “behind the scenes” kind of fruit.

Stay tuned as the recreational vegan (seen below in customary pear worship) begins its official celebration of the pear.
