Okay Jacqui, at first I thought you made it up. But I searched the net and lo & behold, there is actually a World Turtle Day!

What I don't understand is why it isn't a national holiday. We should all get the day off (with pay of course) to celebrate and admire our turtles! Imagine how slow that parade would be!

Okay, it should at least be a celebrated holiday on TFO at the very least!

So Happy World Turtle Day to all!

Yes! One of the best days of the year! I am with Gary; we should all have a day off to putter with our tortoises and turtles.

They are one and the same. World Turtle Day is officially sponsored by the American Tortoise Rescue.

I know I'm a wee bit too late to greet along with y'all, but as they say "It's better late than never."

Belated Happy World Turtle Day! :) :tort:
