My Bucket's Got A Hole In It Day

There is no consensus as to why My Bucket's Got A Hole In It Day exists or why it takes place when it does. Some believe it is a day to celebrate buckets with holes in them, or to get rid of old buckets, to fix leaky buckets, to use them for something new, or to buy new buckets. Some say the day is dedicated to the children's song "There's a Hole in My Bucket." Still others say it is a day for celebrating "My Bucket's Got A Hole In It", a song made popular by Hank Williams.

How to Observe My Bucket's Got A Hole In It Day

You could celebrate the day by throwing away any old, leaky buckets you have and buying new ones. Or, you could try to patch up your old buckets so they don't leak anymore or use them to create something new. Perhaps you like having a leaky bucket, and you could celebrate your bucket just how it is. The day could also be spent listening to "My Bucket's Got A Hole In It" and "There's a Hole in My Bucket".
