Old Rock Day in an unofficially marked holiday that encourages people to acknowledge, celebrate, and learn more about all sorts of old rocks and fossils. It is a day merely meant for exploration and discovery of what once was. Not officially marked though still celebrated by many and highly encouraged for those who do celebrate to share their findings of whatever cool or ancient looking rocks they may find.
Fun Ways To Celebrate Old Rock Day
You can research to learn more about types of old rocks, pick up a book about fossils and learn how fossils tell us more about the Earth’s past, visit your local natural history museum, or even simply take a walk in the park and collect whatever interestingly shaped rocks you may see.
This holiday can bring people together by uniting them in adventure in making new discoveries of what could be lying around a park nearby or even their backyard. It’s always fun to explore with family and friends and this holiday encourages us to do just that.
