Although Jellyfish Day may sound a bit odd to some, it only makes sense to celebrate an invertebrate that has been on this earth for million of years longer than humans. So, this event is meant to honour our slightly slimy counterparts that can sometimes cause a bit of consternation at the beach.
Most feel that the informal origins of Jellyfish Day likely stem from a group of enthusiastic marine biologists or simply through those who merely respect the simplicity of these strange and yet beautiful creatures. The day normally falls within springtime, as this is the season when jellyfish will begin their migration to the shores of the northern hemisphere.
Obviously, commemorating this event can be a bit difficult. We cannot take a jellyfish out to dinner nor would it enjoy a day at the spa. So, simply travelling to the beach in hopes of catching a glimpse of one is all that it takes.
