Old Rock Day

Old Rock Day

When : Always January 7th

Old Rock Day is an opportunity to enjoy and appreciate old rocks and fossils. Perhaps you can start a rock collection. You can go out on a field trip in search of old fossils (the rock kind). Or, if you choose, you can just play with old rocks.

There are a lot of fun-filled, yet ill-defined, wild and wacky holidays. This is one of them. There is little information available on what this day was truly meant to mean. So, the interpretation and the means of celebration is left up to you.

By definition, fossils are old rocks. Jewelry stones are old rocks. And, coal is an old rock, too. You can celebrate any or all of these old rocks today.

Origin of Old Rock Day:
Our research did not discover the originator, nor the reason for Old Rock Day. It's roots could be as old as a fossil.

  I used to collect rocks when I was younger. Since I'm older now, I guess so are the rocks. They're candidates for "Old Rock Day".
