International Bath Day - 14 June.

International Bath Day is celebrated every year on June 14th. This day celebrates the importance of taking baths and spending time in water.

Baths have long been considered a way to relax and refresh oneself. They are also considered to be one of the best ways to improve personal hygiene. In ancient times, people took baths to clean themselves of the dirt and sweat that they had worked up during their day. Today, bathhouses remain popular around the world because they offer a relaxed environment in which to spend time.

Legend has it that on this day, Greek mathematician, scientist, and scholar, Archimedes discovered while taking a bath that an object’s volume could be accurately measured by being submerged in water! Unable to contain his excitement, Archimedes leaped out of the bathtub and yelled, “Eureka, Eureka!” as he ran through the streets of Syracuse, Greece. No one knows the exact date of Archimedes’ birth. However, we do know he was born in the year 287BC. To honor Archimedes, we commemorate the date he leapt out of the bathtub, June 14th.
