The month of carrots

The month of carrots

The Telegraph

Old Janus, the Roman deity after whom the first month of the year is named, has reasons to feel slighted. Mankind, it appears, is hell-bent on stripping January of its divine association -- all for the sake of veggies. Now vegetables, gods and the Roman calendar make for a strange brew, and there is indeed a case here to stir the pot, as it were, to make things clearer. The rechristening of January to 'Veganuary' has something to do with a campaign that seeks to elicit a pledge from the conscientious that they would shun meat and dairy products for at least this month. The fruit of Veganuary - the taxonomy plot thickens - goes back to the seed of 'Movember', another quaintly named mission that asks men to grow handlebar moustaches for the sake of health.
