Today's National Whatever Holiday is National Crown Roast of Pork Day.

Pork is the culinary name for meat from the domestic pig, which is eaten all over the world. The word pork denotes specifically the fresh meat of the pig that is left unsalted, but it is often mistakenly used as an all-inclusive term which includes cured, smoked, or processed meats (ham, bacon, prosciutto, etc.).

Pork is eaten in various forms, including cooked (as roast pork), cured (some hams, including the Italian prosciutto) or smoked or a combination of these methods (other hams, gammon, bacon or Pancetta). It is also a common ingredient in sausages. Charcuterie is the branch of cooking devoted to prepared meat products, many from pork.

A pork loin crown roast is arranged into a circle, either boneless or with rib bones protruding upward as points in a crown. Pork is considered a taboo food item in Islam, Judaism, and some Christian sects.
