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.
If you like to get into a steamy hot tub of water and soap well today is your day! We celebrate Bubble Bath Day for all those who like to soak in the tub for hours. Now we all know kids love Bubble Baths, women tend to enjoy the Bubble Bath, and occasionally men even enjoy a soap delight.
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.
