**English not my first language**
Well, although Im new to the fórums, I'm not new to the vore community, and a question has always bugged me, where does vore day come from? or its just a clever date pun and everyone agreed to make it the vore day?

The most detailed explanation I've heard is that it started as a Japanese pun on Pixiv. The Japanese term for vore -- "marunomi" -- can also read as "only circles", and "8/8" is a bunch of circles. Plus, "eight eight" translated to Japanese supposedly sounds like a gurgling stomach.

The fact that the date is also coincidentally "ate ate" probably helped the holiday catch on.

Hachi doesn't really sound like a stomach. Eighty eight I believe would be hachi-juu-hachi. I'm not a native speaker of Japanese but I did study a bit of it.

You're right, eighty-eight (88) is hachi-juu-hachi. But just the numbers eight-eight (8/8) is hachihachi, which is just two accent marks from pachipachi, which is an onomatopoeic sputtering sound.

Or this could all be a logical stretch and total nonsense. I have no idea if this sound even applies to a stomach. I read a claim that "8/8 is a pun on the sound of a growling stomach" and had to fill in the blanks myself.

At least the "marunomi" explanation seems legit.

Yeah sputtering is more of a harsh choking sound than anything or at least I think so.
I'll never have a clue what i'm doing.

And that isn't why it's called that. XD

It's that Japanese thing. Whether it only is the all circles or the growl thing too, I can't remember, but it's the Japanese thing. It was stated so when it first started being a thing 7 or 8 years ago.
