Rub-a-dub-dub, it's time for a scrub! Hip hip hooray, October 7 is Bathtub Day! Not to be confused with National Read in the Bathtub Day, observed in February, or National Bathtub Party Day which is held in December, this annual event commemorates the day the bathtub was introduced in England back in 1828.
In honor of Bathtub Day, why not skip the shower and go for the tub? Today is the perfect time to light (turn on) a few flameless candles, grab a glass of your favorite bubbly, pour in Mr. Bubbles and enjoy a fabulous soak in the tub. Just don’t forget your rubber duckies!
