NATIONAL STEP IN A PUDDLE AND SPLASH YOUR FRIENDS DAY – January 11

NATIONAL STEP IN A PUDDLE AND SPLASH YOUR FRIENDS DAY

On National Step in a Puddle and Splash Your Friends Day, particular criteria must be present to celebrate. On January 11th, unless the ideal conditions prevail, some areas of the country may have to create them. So, can we really? Well, yes, the name of the day says you can!  Life is short….let’s have fun! And good luck. 

If you are feeling somewhat mischievous (in a nice kind of way), join in on the celebration that all kids will love and all the young-at-heart adults will love just the same. Put on your boots, raincoats, slickers and grab some rubber duckies, too. Skip along the way. Splashing in puddles can be a terrific way to relieve stress. There’s no right or wrong way to splashing or stepping in a puddle. We’re going to get wet and probably a little dirty no matter how you do it. So splash away. 

Now, if you live in a more frozen region of the country, we encourage you to find alternative ways to celebrate. We know you’ll be creative and safe.
