An event of an exotic nature is celebrated on June 21. It reminds us of the sea when we talk about National Seashell Day. Go out to the beach and get the sand under your feet. Find a seashell and examine it. Does it remind you of a miniature projection of the universe?
This holiday, free of pressing banality, first appeared in 2016. The tourist organizations of the state of Florida decided to draw visitors’ attention to the shells on sandy beaches.
The collection of inhabited shells is prohibited. It is considered a violation of regulations for protecting wildlife and the environment.
- The commercial sale of seashells is prohibited. Be responsible and do not violate the law!
- An empty shell found on the shore may be taken home and used as a souvenir.
- The surface of the shells can be smooth, flat, or covered with spikes or ridges.
The pattern on the shells is distinguished by their originality and uniqueness. Two hundred thousand marine inhabitants create unique shells.
According to Eastern philosophy, shells are considered a symbol of prosperity and good luck.
How to take part
Find a shell on the beach, see if it is empty. If a creature lives in it, take the shell to the sea; you can’t leave it on the shore or take it home! Find empty shells, take a picture of your collection, and share it.
