National Step In The Puddle And Splash Your Friends Day

Playing in puddles is one of those things just about all of us have done as children, but rarely do since we’ve become adults. And we think that’s quite the shame. Being able to play in a puddle and having water fights with your friends is not only fun but quite special as well.

It’s just a shame so many of us have to leave those childish behaviors behind. Or do we? A holiday that falls on January 11th encourages us all to indulge in that childish behavior for at least one day. This holiday is called National Step in a Puddle and Splash Your Friends Day, and it’s a holiday that’s ready to transport people all around the world back to their childhoods.

Interesting Facts About Rain

Since we’re talking about puddles, and puddles are created by rain, we thought we’d take a few moments and give out some rain facts. The following facts are perfect for anyone wishing to celebrate this holiday, so let’s dig into them.

  • U.S. scientists have postulated that the rain on Saturn could contain diamonds.
  • Antarctica only receives a few inches of rain per year.
  • Science has estimated that it’s been raining on Earth for approximately 2.7 billion years.

Observing National Step In A Puddle And Splash Your Friends Day

Okay, we’re a little confused about the placement of this holiday on the calendar. After all, the 11th day of January falls right in the middle of winter, so there’s a good chance that any puddle that did exist is frozen over.

Unless this holiday means that you should splash in a puddle symbolically. We just don’t know. We guess that you should just do your best to enjoy the holiday in any way you see fit. Oh, and don’t forget to use the hashtag #NationalStepInAPuddleDay on your social media accounts.
