Guess what? This weekend Twitter celebrated an imaginary holiday for an imaginary creature….and we think that’s pretty rad to be honest. But as luck would have it, some Twitter folk got really upset about celebrating this imaginary day for this imaginary creature and decided to be major buzzkills. Now you must be left wondering what imaginary creatures are we talking about, isn’t it? Well, these imaginary creatures are nothing but the magical unicorn. Yeah, the sparkly, colourful one horned majestic creature, the unicorn.
So guess what the buzzkill groupies introduced instead of the unicorn? The narwhal.

The narwhal is popularly known as the Arctic Whale. Here are some interesting things to note: The Arctic whale’s spiral tusk can grow to more than 9 feet long. Also, this tusk is also extremely sensitive which has around 10 million nerve endings inside.
Given the dubious state of unicorns’ existence in this real world, National Unicorn Day is more of a cultural celebration rather than a wildlife awareness campaign. Another interesting fact to know here is that the unicorn is the national animal of Scotland. We thin that’s rather…magical.
Coming back to the narwhals, they can easily be called the unicorns of the sea, don’t you think?
