“Rub-a-dub-dub, three men in a tub,” as the nursery rhyme goes. Today, we might wonder why there were three men in a tub and what their intentions were, but then maybe they were just having a bathtub party. Yup, there’s actually a day devoted to breaking out the bubble bath liquid or your favorite essential oils and drawing yourself a nice warm bath. There’s nothing that’s quite the same as a nice dip in the tub, even if you are normally more the showering type. As for those three men in a tub? Well, we’d like to imagine that they were just celebrating Bathtub Party Day.

How to Celebrate Bathtub Party Day
Most homes and apartments in the US already come with a bathtub in them, so we’re going to assume that you already have got that part covered. Just in case you haven’t, consider investing in an old-fashioned copper bathtub, or better yet a Victorian-style clawfoot which would be the ideal setting for many relaxing baths.
A bath does seem incomplete without bubbles for some, so feel free to add bubble bath. We find that baths with essential oils can actually be more calming and satisfying. Of course, the folks at Wellcat.com both invented Bathtub Party Day, so it might be a worthwhile venture to go check their merchandise out.
Anyway, once you’ve figured out the logistics and have a nice dry towel on hand, go ahead and fill your bathtub with warm water, silence your phone, and put on some relaxing music. Since this is a holiday we’re talking about, celebrations can and by all means are encouraged to include things like friends, hot chocolate, and wine.
After all, it’s not just Bathtub Day, but Bathtub Party Day, so you may as well take the opportunity to turn it into a fun, social occasion with your friends. Of course you can also use your creativity to create your own unique bathtub party. Just imagine how relaxing it is to be surrounded by warm water, pleasant fragrances, and delightful candles. You’ll find it difficult to come up with a reason not to celebrate Bathtub Party Day.
