Since they first appeared on the scene in the 1800s, rubber duckies have grown to become an American icon, splish-splashing their way into the hearts of children and adults alike. In addition to their famous role as Ernie’s best friend on Sesame Street, these cute, little bath time companions have even earned themselves their own holiday – National Rubber Ducky Day (Jan. 13)!
To celebrate today’s occasion, we’re quacking open a bottle of bubble bath and paying homage to our fowl friends, without whom, the tub would be a lonely place.
After all, who else is going to fend off bath sharks?
And keep the sea monsters at bay?
Though, outside creeps are a different story…
There’s still nothing better than soakin’ up some suds with your best bath time pal.
