September 16th Collect Rocks Day

If you take a trip anywhere and want to have a reminder of your visit there is no better way to do so than to collect rocks, and it’s cheap too! Okay, well maybe taking pictures is a better reminder but rocks can work too. Nearly every place you go will have some form of a rock that you can take home with you and add to your collection. The only thing is, you might want to find a way to mark your rock so you can remember where it came from. In the case of visiting several locations it might be hard to remember where your rock came from since most rocks kinda look alike. And from personal experience, you might want to think pebbles instead of boulders.

Caveat – make sure where you are taking a rock from is not illegal to do so, many national parks around the world do have laws against it – so in that case make today #Takeapictureofarockday instead 🙂 It’s still collecting!!!

How to celebrate – Start your rock collection. Remember that gold and silver are generally thought of as rocks as well. Find a way to mark your rocks so you know where they came from.

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.
