National Lighthouse Day is celebrated on August 7. This holiday was created in 1989 by Senator John H. Chafee (Rhode Island) to commemorate the first Federal Lighthouse Act on August 7, 1789. This act established and supported lighthouses, beacons, buoys and public piers. The 1989 legislation designated that lighthouse grounds (where feasible) be open to the public. (Source)
How to write about National Lighthouse Day:
- Have you ever visited a lighthouse? Did you climb to the top without having a heart attack? Write about the experience? Have you ever been on the sea and guided by a lighthouse?
- What is your modern-day version of a lighthouse? Most of us are not sailors. Write about what metaphorically guides you in your life.
