January 8th National Bubble Bath Day

January 8th National Bubble Bath Day

I am not a big bath person. I do not understand the wisdom in sitting in a bathtub when you are dirty and transferring that dirt into the water you then wash yourself with! However, if you take a shower first and then get into a bath it can be relaxing and soothing. And you can make it oh so much better by adding bubble bath to the tub. It is believed that bubble bath was originally thought to keep the water warmer. That may, or may not, prove to be the case. It served the early movie industry well to imply that someone was nude the tub of water when they were actually dressed but the clothing was covered up by the bubble bath. Which generates the idea that maybe you can take a bath and wash your clothes at the same time if you use bubble bath!

How to celebrate – Get some bubble bath! Don’t forget your rubber ducky! Invent a shower bubble bath solution.

Dec. 5th Bathtub Party Day

December 5th Bathtub Party Day

So this holiday could go one way or the other. You can make it very innocent by putting every bath time toy in your tub with you. Or you can make it a little more adult by adding real friends to your tub. Now I have to admit, taking a bath does have some health benefits to it, it is relaxing and can melt away a day filled with stress. I just sort of look at a bath as swimming in a lake. You take all the dirt with you that you are trying to get rid of, sit in it, and then call yourself clean. Maybe take a shower first. The day was created by Wellcat.com.

How to celebrate – Throw a party in your bathtub! Gather up all your bath time toys and don’t forget your rubber ducky! By some 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.

August 15th National Relaxation Day

Why do these days always seem to fall during the work week? Clearly someone who is either retired, or not working created them. Seeing as how no one has claimed it, it makes me think it may be the latter.

However, that being said, today is a day to sleep in, and let your mind, and muscles, take a break (or serve in Congress which is about the same thing). We do need to relax though, it builds us back up, and makes us actually more productive when it is time to work.

In some ways, wouldn’t it be nice if we could sleep walk through our day. Get our work done while we sleep so we can accomplish two things at once! Or how about doing one of those 5k runs!?! If we could sleep through it we could get in shape while catching up on our sleep! Most work an 8 hour day and they say, whoever they are, that we should get 8 hours of sleep too, perfect! Get them both done at the same time!

Then when we are awake we can spend more time… you got it… relaxing! We could be the most relaxed creatures on earth! The same “they” also say we are most creative when we are relaxed. I assume that’s because we don’t have to think about what we have to do. I know a lot of people that I have worked with don’t ever seem to be thinking about work when they are working.

So today is your day to relax. Sit back and let your mind wander, your muscles unwind and your nerves settle. You deserve it because… well because… just because.

How to celebrate – Spend your day relaxing. Figure out your own relaxation schedule, so long as it doesn’t require any effort. Don’t worry, be happy.

January 8th Bubble Bath Day

As I have stated before, I do not totally understand the concept of a bath. If you are taking a bath because you want to get clean, it makes no sense to me at all. Whatever dirt you have accumulated during the day you transfer to the water as soon as you sit down in the tub. Hence, when you are done, and rise up to get out of the bath, you will carry a certain amount of that dirt back on you. Just look at the ring around your tub when the water drains out to prove my point.

I do understand the idea of the bath for infants. First off, they either can’t stand yet or they can’t stand for very long. And I suppose even as they get older they like to play in the water. I guess this is what we call good clean fun!

I even understand it for animals, who are probably having to be restrained while they are bathed. I have never met one that will take a shower on their own. And naturally if you get in there with them you may need a bath to sooth those muscles you have strained.bubble-bath-600x450

I even understand the relaxation felt when sitting in a hot tub of water. Athletes use it to relax and help massage those bruised bones and pulled muscles. Adding a little aromatic therapy can be a really good idea as well. However, if the purpose is to get clean then you will need a shower afterwards, before or both! The bubbles do help, I’m not exactly sure why, but they do.

Now when you add a little champagne, candles and some bubbles to your bath I begin to get an entirely different picture. Add a few chocolates, some romantic music and two people, already clean from taking a shower, the idea changes completely! The peek-a-boo effect is fun and I suppose it could still be categorized as having a little clean fun!

How to celebrate – Make your own good reason for a bubble bath. Try taking a bubble shower! Plan a massive bubble bath with the entire family, including the animals, dressed appropriately of course.
