Today is dedicated to two relaxing pastimes: taking a bath and reading books. It is unknown who started the day, but troubles and stresses are sure to be eased by all who participate. It is a day for reading for enjoyment, not for reading for work, school, or other obligations. It is a day to forget one's cares, even if it is only for as long as it takes one's body to start to shrivel and wrinkle in water.
How to Observe Read in the Bathtub Day
Celebrate the day by reading in the bathtub. Since it is a celebration, pick a book you've always been meaning to read. Make sure it's something exciting, because you don't want to fall asleep while soaking in the tub. Add some bubble bath, essential oils, or bath salts to the tub; light some candles, and put on some relaxing music. If you are worried about getting your book wet, pick up a bathtub tray. You could also pick up a bathtub pillow to make your reading experience more comfortable. No matter how you set up your bathroom, if you just have a bathtub and a book you are able to celebrate!
