September 16th Collect Rocks Day

Some people collect paintings, some collect books, others collect old coins, and some collect antiques. Well, if you don’t have that sort of money, maybe you can collect rocks. Or if you do have money you can collect a different type of rock! Rocks are interesting, they have been around for a long, long time and have seen a lot more of what happens in life than we ever will. Some may have been a part of the Great Wall of China once, or a pebble that got inside Napoleon’s shoe. They may have even come from the moon, or a passing comet. The fact is, that rocks may have seen more history than we ever will, or even than mankind ever will. So collect rocks and be proud of it! Others may say it’s because you are cheap, but you’ll know better.

How to celebrate – Collect a rock and make it a “pet”. Imagine what you think this rock has seen. Learn about the different kinds of rocks there are.
