DALLAS (KDAF) — However you want to say it, “The world is your oyster,” or, “The world’s mine oyster,” treat life as it is your oyster; pry it open gulp it down, and enjoy!

It’s time to turn your nose appropriately to the land of the sea and enjoy a delicacy that is the oyster as Friday, August 5 is National Oyster Day!

NationalToday says, “On August 5 each year, the U.S. honors a very special mollusk, the oyster, for National Oyster Day. Enjoyed as seafood in many parts of the world, this fine delicacy needs no introduction, but someone certainly thought it could use a celebration. Boil it, eat it fresh, put it in soup — there are many delicious ways to feast on oysters and just as many ways to enjoy this particular day.”
