September 30th National Mud Pack Day

I’m glad it’s the last day of September because when we have to resort to celebrate mud pack day. Not that there is anything wrong with mud packs but can you really celebrate them?

I guess mudpacks have been around for a really, really long time. Originally I am not sure they were thought of as a good thing. But mud does have it’s redeeming characteristics. I find it very odd that it can help clean even though it is dirt itself!

Naturally, animals love mud. It cooling and relaxing to wallow around in. It is when it dried that it becomes a problem and then either needs cleaning or more mud to be applied. Either way, it’s a dirty job but someone has to do it.

And then I guess there is clean mud, but is it really mud then? Hard to say. People spend a lot of money to get mud applied to them, I can generally do that for free! However, I have to admit I do not know how to find clean mud.

But if you like to be covered in mud I have no problem with that. It seems natural enough.And generally speaking, if it’s good for one animal, it must be good for another too. So… enjoy.

How to celebrate – Have a mud pack applied today. Do not swim in your pool after applying the mud. Go skinny dipping in a bog.
