The one-horned horse with colors of the rainbow on it represents innocence, wonder, happiness, and fantasy. Unicorns are also a symbol of purity, magic, and enchantment. Kids love unicorns for that reason. However, many adults also love unicorns as it helps them connect with their inner child and playful side as you always have that no matter how old you become.
You often see unicorns on children’s clothing or birthday cakes because, once again, that is the creature that kids absolutely love. You will also see unicorns in cartoons and movies for kids.

Therefore, the unicorn is quite good for children’s development, which is another reason you will want to celebrate this mythical creature. How did National Unicorn Day begin?
The History Of National Unicorn Day
The discovery of unicorns came from ancient Mesopotamian artwork as they were myths from India, Greece, and China. In Greek mythology, the belief was that unicorns ran away wild in another realm. In addition to that, the animal in the Hebrew Bible known as ‘re’em’ was believed to be a unicorn. During medieval times, the unicorn was the symbol of purity, and the horn was believed to heal the sick. The Romans, Celts, and Persians also believed that this mythical creature was all about freedom, strength, and grace. The Scottish coat of arms had a unicorn as their symbol since the 12th century. There is no known reason why April 9th was designed as National Unicorn Day, but in 2015 was the establishment of the day.
