With the beginning of January being the first week back from a much needed vacation, what better way to celebrate than National Bubble Day.
On Thurs., Jan. 8, FC student leadership will be celebrating National Bubble Day by distributing small bottles of bubbles to the student body. At lunch time, students will be able to blow the bubbles in camaraderie with one another.
Vickey Belmont, student leadership advisor, explains the background of this unique national day.
“Thursday Jan. 8 is actually National Bubble Bath Day, but since we can’t all be in a bubble bath at school, we decided to just make it National Bubble Day,” Belmont said. “We will be handing out bubbles at lunch, and students will be able to blow them.”
According to nationaldaycalendar.com, National Bubble Bath Day is an unofficial national holiday for the reason being that they were not able to find the creator of National Bubble Bath Day. However, it is celebrated because it is found that one of the most relaxing things to do on a typical winter day is to relax in a quiet and calm bubble bath, therefore it was made a day dedicated to bubble baths. It is also a fact that the bubbles on top of the water (also known as foam bath or foaming bath) insulate the bath water, keeping it warmer for a longer period of time.
Senior Breanna Jennings, expresses her opinion of this upcoming Thurs.
“I think it is really strange that they made a national day dedicated to bubble baths, but since we are getting free bubbles at school, I think it is going to be really fun and interesting,” Jennings said.
National Bubble day is not the only strange day on Thurs., Jan. 8. It is also National JoyGerm Day, which is a comical way of saying “spread the joy,” since germs spread very easily.
“National JoyGerm Day was created as a day to remind people across the country that by being positive and treating people with kindness they can influence those around them and pass that positiveness on to others, impacting the lives of people and even those that we do not even have direct contact with,” according to nationaldaycalendar.com.
With that being said, The Feather staff not only invites you to blow bubbles with us this upcoming Thurs., but we also encouraging you to spread those joyful germs, and be the best version of yourself on this day!
