Celebrating Monkey Day
December 14 is an unofficial international holiday for celebrating Monkey Day. Worldwide, this day is enjoyed by acting like monkeys, attending costume parties, creating art, music, competitions, and just generally encouraging monkey business.
But on a more serious note, celebrating Monkey Day is an opportunity to raise awareness of the theory of evolution, medical research and animal rights. Monkey Day not only celebrates monkeys, though. It’s also a day to focus on other non-human primates such as apes, tarsiers, and lemurs.
It is sometimes known as “World Monkey Day.” It has no religious affiliations.
My way of celebrating Monkey Day is to share with you different articles I wrote about these primates. Enjoy.

Now, if you will excuse me, I will continue celebrating Monkey Day by having a rather large bowl of Ben & Jerry’s Chunky Monkey ice cream. Mmmm. Ciao for now!
