(All Our Uncles are Monkeys Day)
Date When Celebrated : Always November 24
Now here is a very special day, if there ever was one.
Evolution Day Proclamation
Today is the anniversary of the publication of Charles Darwin's book: On the Origin of Species in 1859. His controversial theory turned the world upside down, in tis thinking of how we came to be. And, it remains controversial to this day.
This very special day for all homo sapiens is also called "All Our Uncles Are Monkeys Day".
This day has even more significance. It is also the anniversary of the discovery of "Lucy", the Australopithecus afarensis skeleton, by Donald Johanson and Tom Gray in 1974. This skeleton is very important in the study of evolution.
Origin of Evolution Day:
We did not find who declared or created this special day of celebration. Let's face it, our evolution is indeed a very important event to be celebrated.
We also did not find out when this special day was created. Perhaps, you can narrow it own to sometime between this year and 1859, when Darwin published his Theory of Evolution. I like to think we have been celebrating this special day since the dawn of mankind.
