January 8th Bubble Bath Day

I’ve explained my position on baths before. I do not understand how you get clean by sitting in the dirty water you have created but forgetting that, a bubble bath can be fun. (Just take a shower first) All those bubbles, the scents used to make them and, of course, the rubber ducky! They can be relaxing or romantic, they help break fever and get you all wrinkly. So I guess a bubble bath can be fun, after all isn’t that why you add the bubbles to it? Splish-Splash the day away sitting in the tub, but you really should wait for a Saturday night.

How to celebrate – Take a bubble bath. You can try a bubble shower but it’s not as effective. Remember your favorite rubber ducky!

December 5th Bathtub Party Day

Get your rubber ducky and fill up the bathtub, it’s time for a party! Send out invitations to the soap, a wash cloth and maybe some bubble bath. You can invite friends too but then you might have to call it something else. I have said this before, I do not understand the logic of a bath. You sit in water that you rinse your own dirt off in. In my mind you need to take a shower first before getting in the bath! But that’s just me. Baths can be soothing, it helps break fevers and it can be a party if you bring enough toys or friends with you.

How to celebrate – Take a bath. Name your rubber duck. Don’t forget the bubble bath!

January 8th National Bubble Bath Day

This is a great day! Particularly because yesterday we were out honoring rocks which probably made us dirty so today we can wash it all away by taking a bubble bath! There’s nothing like sitting in that tub full of bubbles that were actually clean before you got in it!


Now I do understand that a bubble bath is soothing. I am not exactly sure why but I will admit it is. There is something about sitting in a tub of hot water watching bubbles float by that relaxes us, makes us feel one with the universe because we all know, bubbles make up a large majority of what the earth is covered in.


And we are owed that right to sit there and do nothing while the bubbles cleanse us with their magical abilities. A good bath is generally accompanied by wine and rose pedals which clearly make it better. Add a few candles, maybe some chocolate and the world is a much better place. Or at least the world doesn’t matter for a little while.


We can dream about finding rocks, solving life’s mysteries and think of all the good times to come… while we wallow in our own dirt and pretend we are getting clean.

In the old days, baths were the accepted way to get clean. Not so much anymore as the shower has replaced it. Personally I am not a bath person. I do not understand being dirty, making up a bath of hot water and then sitting in it. Yes, it does relax you, but does it get you clean? After all, you are sitting in all that water that you just made dirty.


Now I suppose you could take a shower first, then get in the tub, or get in the tub and then take a shower afterwards. Seems a little redundant. But if you consider that the bubble bath is not actually about getting clean, it’s about having fun and letting your muscles relax.

It can be about other things too but we won’t go there. It’s bubble bath day, something we all have little time for but maybe should make time for! Remember how happy you were when you were a kid and it was bubble bath time? You forgot you were even taking a bath, it was all about the bubbles.


How to celebrate – Take a Bubble Bath! Share your bubble bath! Don’t forget to include your very best friend… your rubber ducky.
