March 21st Mermaid Day
One of the most beloved creatures of the sea is the mermaid. Originally sailors thought that manatees were mermaids. Ah, I think they needed glasses, but beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Today we celebrate mermaid day by having parades and parties featuring our favorite sea creature. The most recognized parade is on Coney Island where every mermaid known to man will be represented. I’ll bet the event makes a real splash with all who attend.
How to celebrate – Dress up like a mermaid. Go to Florida and see manatees up close. Visit Coney Island and take part in the big event.
