Bubble Baths & Rubber Ducks Week

The CBC Holidays Series explores stories that relate to specific holidays so that readers of all ages can celebrate in the best way… with a good book!

This week, we are celebrating National Bubble Bath Day (Jan 8) and National Rubber Ducky Day (Jan 13). We all know how important it is to stay clean, and taking a bubble bath can be a fun way to wash up. From making bubble bushy beards to poofy hats, every bathtime can be an adventure. And we can’t forget to bring along our bright yellow companion, the rubber duck! Since the 1940s, rubber ducks have been a fixture for bathtimes, floating in the water next to us to keep us company. So let’s pour some bubbles in the bathtub, grab our rubber ducks, and enjoy these holidays.
