Every August 7 is celebrated as the world lighthouse day. A lighthouse is a building specifically designed to emit light and functions as a navigation guide for ships at sea. Without a lighthouse, ships will have difficulty sailing at night and risk hitting rocks or dangerous objects.
What happens when the lighthouse hasn’t been created yet? It is said that the sailors use the help of light from a flame to sail at night. Sailors are guided by fires that are deliberately placed on hills that are located on the edge of the sea. Because the flame increases visibility, this practice also leads to the development of lighthouses.
