Actually, National Unicorn Day should be called “International Unicorn Day”, because this magical holiday is celebrated around the world. National Unicorn Day is celebrated on April 9th every year. It is a special day to celebrate unicorns and the unicorn mythology that has been part of our culture for thousands of years.

In Scotland, National Unicorn Day is more important than anywhere else. The unicorn is the national animal of Scotland, and National Unicorn Day was celebrated in Scotland in the first place. That’s why it’s called “National Unicorn Day”.

7 Ways to Celebrate National Unicorn Day

Even if you don’t live in Scotland, you can celebrate National Unicorn Day at your own home. These are our top activities to do on National Unicorn Day. You can enjoy them with your family, your partner or even on your own.

1. Wear a Unicorn Headband.

That brings us to my first tip, which is to wear a unicorn headband. If there’s one day of the year that is perfect for wearing a unicorn headband, that’s National Unicorn Day!

If you’re crafty, you can make a unicorn headband yourself.

2. Bake a Unicorn Cake or Unicorn Cupcakes.

Unicorns love sweets, so of course, you want some sweet treats on National Unicorn Day, right? πŸ™‚ To match the unicorn theme, bake a yummy unicorn cake or unicorn cupcakes. Unicorns love them too.

If you want to give it your all, try baking a stunning unicorn cake, like in this super popular YouTube video.

3. Make Unicorn Crafts.

If you’re a crafty unicorn, National Unicorn day is the perfect day to work on a unicorn DIY project.

4. Play Unicorn Games.

Playing a unicorn board game is a fun unicorn activity you can do at home. The most popular unicorn board game at the moment is Monopoly Unicorns vs. Llamas. Instead of buying properties, in the unicorn and llama version of Monopoly you compete for which animal is cuter.

5. Do Unicorn Yoga.

Unicorn yoga is like regular yoga, except for more magical. Unicorn yoga poses have names like “tail to the sky” and “unicorn warrior”. I got the unicorn yoga card game on Unicorn Dream Box, and it’s a lot of fun. At-home yoga is a perfect exercise, and the unicorn version of yoga is even more fun than regular yoga.

Doing some unicorn yoga on National Unicorn Day is a great way to connect with the spiritual side of unicorns.

6. Walk in a Forest.

You can’t get in touch with your inner unicorn without connecting with nature. If there’s a forest nearby, take a nice long walk in the forest. Forest is a good place to avoid people (unless everyone else has thought of the same thing at the same time) and to spot unicorns. If you’re feeling adventurous, you can even go for a walk with your unicorn headband on.

  1. I wasn’t even aware that there was a national unicorns day, which actually makes this quarantine so much calmer than not doing anything at all. I love your excitement and your advice towards celebrating this day, even if the world is crumbling all around us. Thank you for your dedication with this website.

    1. Hi Stephanie,

      Yeah, I feel like I’m the only one here in Finland who knew about the National Unicorn Day. People don’t even know there is such a day (except for me, of course πŸ˜€ ). The National Unicorn Day is most widely celebrated in Scotland, and I think recently in United States too. But not everyone knows about it. Me and my husband did celebrate it, mostly by taking a walk in a forest, which was one of my tips for the occasion.

      I think these unicorn activities can make the quarantine more fun after the National Unicorn Day too. Because like I said, any day can be a unicorn day. πŸ™‚

      Thank you for your comment, keep safe and have a magical day!
