Happy Bubble Wrap Day. How are you celebrating?

Maybe there were some people who have been counting down the days, weeks and months to today. Maybe they could barely sleep last night. Maybe they even got a little gift for that special someone in their life to commemorate this momentous occasion. Unless you've been living under a rock for your entire life, you know that today is Bubble Wrap Appreciation Day.

If you are going to any length whatsoever to celebrate today as a holiday (except to publicly condemn the existence of such an idea), you and I cannot be friends. I don't care if you do work at the UPS store or regularly wrap fragile and priceless antiques, you shouldn't be celebrating today as a holiday.

You probably think I'm just using my little forum to preach hatred to bubble wrap. Quite the contrary; I love bubble wrap and its many uses, but I don't think there should be a holiday for it. I also love corn dogs, but won't be celebrating Corn Dog Day on March 20th.

Why do we insist on making up these ridiculous holidays? Do we not have enough happiness in our lives without them? If your life is so mundane that you need to make up a holiday to celebrate frogs (May 29), toilets (November 19) or waffles (August 24), you might want to consider getting a puppy.

I just feel bad for all the real holidays.


  1. I couldn't have said it better myself!

  2. I answered you on my blog. We LOVE to celebrate Bubble Wrap Day! Actually, it was a bit of a coincidence that we were playing with bubble wrap for the first time last night...

  3. Nothing wrong with a toilet holiday pal...

  4. hmmmm, i wonder what calendar you're using? my calendar said it was "Opposite Day". I'm really looking forward to March 16th, "Everything You Do Is Right Day".
