    Default Vegan Anniversary

    Today is my 16th vegan anniversary!

    Every year I try to do something special for this day.
    Last year I wrote my 'Why Vegan' clip.
    This year I didn't have a lot of time, but still wanted to do something.
    So I created Vegan Anniversary E-Cards.

    I think that entitles you to two pieces of cake. Alison! I wish I could go to the fayre and celebrate with you but I have to attend a wedding. I hope you have a nice time there. Gloucester has a lovely cathedral if you like that sort of thing.

    It's odd how there's so many on that poll who became vegan around 2004/5. I wonder why that is? Maybe there was something that happened around that time that got people's attention? Maybe it's just because that's when this thread was created? I'd be interested to know if there's some statistics like this, but more accurately showing how many people have been vegan during what years if anyone knows of one!

    Oh and 2 years 1 month for me, 8 years off/on vegie before that

    It was my New Year's resolution this year, so six months and nine days. I'd been going vegan and failing and going back and forth from lacto-ovo vegetarianism for four years, and had been l-o for some years before trying veganism for the first time. Finally this year I've really done it!

    Yes, this thread was created, and was active.

    I didn't add 2006 as an option until a few days ago (didn't think of it).

    Around the end of November it would two years. WOW.

    What should I celebrate with? Maybe I'll attempt a vegan "cheese"cake and stuff my face with that.

    Hehehe. I have to find a good recipe. A lot seem to require a graham cracker crust and all the graham crackers I find contain honey.

    You can use pretty much any cookies for that kind of crust - I use ginger nuts when I make lemon tofu cheesecake, I think that's a really yummy combination

    I'll have been vegan for 10 years next February. I may have to have a party
