Feast of the Donkey  

Feast of the Donkey

This fuzzy donkey feeding on the leaves of a cherry tree probably doesn"t know that today was once celebrated as the Feast of the Donkey. We think any day is a good day to celebrate donkeys. They"ve carried the load for humans for more than 7,000 years, so let"s give them some love. More than 40 million donkeys do the heavy lifting around the world today, with 11 million in China alone.
