Bubble Bath Day
When: Always January 8th
Bubble baths are so much fun. We wish everyday could be Bubble Bath Day. Today is a fun day to relax an enjoy the warm and soothing pleasures of a bubble bath. Best of all, it can be enjoyed by kids and adults. For kids, it's playtime. For adults, it's soothing pleasure, and perhaps ....playtime.
On Bubble Bath Day, there are a couple of ways to enjoy your bubble bath. It depends upon how old you are.
For kids, it's simple.... Just fill the tub with bubbles and toys. Then hop in and play!
For the ladies, its time to relax! Fill the tub with bubbly water. Hop in and just enjoy the soothing water and bubbles. Before hoping in, set the mood with candles placed (safely) around the bathroom and tub. Add a music, playing softly on the sink counter.
For the guys: Don't feel left out! With permission, you can hop in, too! Get in touch with your feminine side, and make sure the candles are lit. You can relax and/or play. The proper sequence is relax, play, relax. We highly recommend both!
Oh, and don't forget your rubber duckie!
