Today was originally designed to give 58 orphaned children in Nepal a day of fun. They were allowed to go out and play in the mud, no questions asked. Over the years the day has grown and Gillian McAuliffe officially created the day in 2009 for the World Forum Foundation. It’s sort of funny that something so simple and being allowed to play in the mud can make so many happy. Really, most adults as well as children love the idea of playing in the mud. It’s simple, requiring only dirt and water and the results can all be washed away. So let you kids have a few minutes of fun, maybe you can join in the fun (The kids would love that).
How to celebrate – Find, or make, a mud puddle. Give to the World Forum Foundation. Do a rain dance!
