National Bubba Day

Saturday, June 02, 2012

National Bubba Day

When : Always June 2nd

National Bubba Day honors anyone named or called Bubba. To qualify to be honored today, your name can be formally, or informally "Bubba". You can even take on the name "Bubba" for just the day. That way everyone can celebrate this day.

There's a lot of ways to celebrate National Bubba Day. Acting like a "Bubba" is your starting point. Cards, parties and other celebrations are definitely in order. Gift giving is optional.

Did you Know? Bubba is the Yiddish word for grandmother

Famous Bubba: A character in the movie Forrest Gump made the name "Bubba" infamous.

The Origin of Bubba:

Our research did not find the creator, or the origin of this day.

We did not find any documentation confirming this to be a "National" day. We found no congressional records or presidential proclamation. Do you think some Bubba in congress would spend time and energy to make this a national day?

    Whoever created and fostered National Bubba Day should be acknowledged. I think Bubba is a state of mind and attitude, and you don't need to be called Bubba. They are rampant here and wonderful people. They will drop everything to help you, even in the middle of the night. I love Bubbas.
Here's a little toast to another unsung hero:

Here's to the man who invented stairs
And taught our feet to soar.
He was the first to burst
Onto the second floor.

The world would be downstairs today
Had he not found the key;
So let his name go down in fame,
Whatever it may be.
