I was reading the newspaper this morning. There was some interesting news about what’s going on with the world today.
Yes. I’m still an old-school person. I read newspapers. That’s my 10-minute morning ritual while I’m enjoying my smoothie.
That’s when my daughter came. She said to me to throw that piece of paper I was holding in my hands. She was vividly frustrated.
When I asked her why, she mentioned something about her zodiac saying she will have a bad day.
This was funny to me, but some people really believe in these things.
So, don’t worry I won’t write the daily zodiac here, I found something that will satisfy their hunger. And it’s different than the zodiac.
It has been a while since I shared something like this with you.
Do you wear a birthstone?
This time, I found this. What the birthstone says about you. What it means and why people wear it.
If we look back thousands of years when the birthstones showed up, we’ll see they are associated with mystery and belief.
The ancient Indians have been wearing them to gain a certain power from it. They were wearing it for protection.
Others believed that each month has its own power.
This is a really interesting story and you will find it amusing. At least I did.
Here are the birthstones and their meanings month by month.

Well, I don’t know. This is what the ancient people believed. I haven’t seen anything like this and I haven’t felt the need to wear one.
However, there are people who are closely attached to them. It was nice to know what were the beliefs of the ancient people.
If this is not interesting for you, it might at least become a nice bedtime story for your kids.
