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.

January 7th Old Rock Day

As we trudge on through our endless reasons to try and find a reason for living we come to Old Rock Day.  I am honestly not sure why we should bother celebrating old rocks, we don’t really celebrate anything else that has value or aged wisdom. But okay, maybe we can find it in old rocks.

We’ve made rocks pets, worshiped them because they must have had a power of sorts somewhere in the past and well gosh.. they are just really, really fun to talk to. At least they don’t disagree with us! Some of them become even more valuable than we are since we too will one day turn into the fossils we seem to admire, so long as they give not opinion or share any experience.

Perhaps there is a reason, after-all, that people are generally thought to be dumb as rocks! I mean really, what can you say about a rock!?! And even if you could say something, why would you!?! But that said, we should honor rocks because, well… they have been around long than us and they will be around long after we are gone.

So you should spend today honoring rocks. Skip work, let congress out to roam the fields and maybe we will even find our next President, or Supreme Leader, under one of them! Since we often mimic rocks by sitting still and doing nothing about anything worth-while they do project our future.

How to celebrate – Take  a rock to lunch. (They don’t eat much) Try not to rock the boat. Go get stoned. (Then take an IQ test but don’t be surprised when the rock scores higher than yourself.)

March 13th National Jewel Day

If you like rocks, or crystals, then this is your day! However, if you give, or receive, a jewel you may want to know what it stands for. (It’s like everything else in life, if we give something we have to have some secret meaning behind it.) The first on the list is…

… the diamond.  The giving, or receiving, of diamonds expresses everlasting love. Guess that’s why we use it for marriage and engagements. Does that mean the bigger the diamond the more you love someone!?! No, it just means the richer you are.

Topaz stands for strength or intellect. Hence the smarter you are or stronger you are the more you need to wear topaz.

If you like emeralds you’d better watch out. Wearing them, or giving them, means you are fertile. It also means rebirth and love. It may also mean you are in Oz.

The sapphire stands for purity and wisdom.

And the ruby Means love, health and wisdom. (My personal favorite!)

So before you give, or accept a rock, stone, crystal or whatever… you really should know what it stands for. You may be telling someone something you didn’t really mean, or maybe it was just because you liked the color. Pretty.

How to celebrate – Check out all the jewels and see what they mean. Buy someone a jewel expressing yourself without saying a word. Start your own rock collection.
