Legend of the Sand Dollar

  • The Sand Dollar Legend is an Easter and Christmas favorite which tells a story that includes the five slits representing the wounds on Christ when on the cross, the Easter lily with a star in the middle representing the star of Bethlehem and on the back is the outline of a Poinsettia, the Christmas flower
  • The five “doves” referred to in the story are actually remnants of the sand dollar’s five “teeth
  • It is said that Christ left the sand dollar as a symbol to help the evangelists teach the faith. The five holes commemorate the five wounds of Christ, while at the center on one side blooms the Easter Lily, and at the lily’s heart is the Star of Bethlehem
  • It is illegal to take or keep a live sand dollar and it carries a hefty fine. If it has hair or is in the water, it is alive and should be placed back into the water, with the hair side down against the sandSand Dollars eat tiny particles of food that float in the water. Dead Sand Dollar shells are called a “test”
