Bubble Wrap Appreciation Day

Dearest hearts,

I love to check out from time to time odd celebrations around the world and guess what do we celebrate today? It's the "Bubble Wrap Appreciation Day"! Come to think of it, Bubble Wrap should indeed have a special day in the calendar. Admit it, you are a fan as well! Everyone is ;) Until this day I have not met a single human being that was able to resist the temptation of breaking the bubbles in a wrap, if they were handed one or if one was placed in they vicinity. At least one pop! And it all goes downhill from there... there is the line for the "Pringles" chips: "Once you pop, you can't stop!" - well that applies perfectly to bubble wrap as well ;)
Did you know that Bubble Wrap was actually supposed to be wallpaper? That is how it was marketed and that was it's purpose "in life" but... as all plans in life, it got sidetracked / hijacked :) that happened with the brains of an American engineer and a Swiss inventor, in the 1950s. Did you also knew that each year Bubble Wrap hosts a "Young Inventor" award? The company encourages people to take part in the contest and find creative ways to use the bubble wrap packaging. Inventions from last year's include floating gardens and swings for people with disability. 
P.S. Today is also International Croissant day, so get some bubble wrap, a Croissant and a cappucino and get cracking on some of those bubbles ;))) if you had enough, feel free to let your mind wander upon what can be done out of those small bubbles of joy. Be creative! Maybe next year you can join in the "Young Inventor" challenge ;)

Yours very much sincerly,
