About Collect Rocks Day
Date When Celebrated: Collect Rocks Day is always observed on September 16
Collect Rocks Day is a day to enjoy and add to your rock collection. Ahh, to be a kid again, and have a rock collection. Well, we have good news for you. No one ever said you had to give up your rock collection when you became an adult. We hope you always keep and cherish your invaluable rock collection. Undoubtedly, young girls who collect rocks will trade in their rock collection as they get older. The kind of rocks a woman seeks are called “gems”. And, where do the ladies often get those gems? Why from the men, of course!
Kids collect rocks because it is a fun thing to do. They even trade rocks among other young rock collectors. There are no books on what rocks to collect, or how much each rock is valued at. Rather, rocks are selected for a collection based upon a wide range of attributes. A lot of it is an individual appeal. The rock could be big or small, a particular color or range of colors. smooth or rough or display a unique characteristic. Consequently, when it comes to rock collecting, beauty is indeed in the eyes of the beholder (or rock holder in this case).
