Monday January 30, 2017 is Bubble Wrap Appreciation Day.

“This day is one of the most unnecessary holidays we can imagine! It’s a fantastic and fun toy that was created by accident, solely for the purpose of preserving delicate items through shipping. From there it’s become a therapeutic bonus prize in every shipping container, loved by men, women, children, and animals alike! If you’ve never had a piece of Bubble Wrap in your hands and just HAD to start popping it … we’re not sure we want to know you.

Okay, so it’s not a toy. Bubble Wrap was originally formed from two shower curtains being sealed together, and the inventors tried to market this as wallpaper.

Ironically, this wasn’t the only misstep on its way to its true calling, the next thing they tried to market it as was greenhouse insulation, which was also largely unsuccessful. A year later they discovered its perfect purpose, and the line of Bubble Wrap brand packaging came to pass. It started off on an auspicious path with IBM being the first customer, shipping the IBM 1401 in air cushioned comfort out to its many customers.

Each year Bubble Wrap hosts a ‘Young Inventor’ award that encourages them to find ways to use Bubble Wrap outside of packaging. Whether you need a Bubble Wrap door cover to help you keep out the dings, or a Bubble Wrap cushy wheelchair to ensure your loved ones are safe from every danger, these young inventors work every year to try to create the newest Bubble Wrap rage.

This day can best be spent by taking a big old roll of Bubble Wrap and popping every single bubble in the sheet … stress relief. One of our favorite ways to distress with Bubble Wrap is to take it and roll it in a tube, grab both ends of it, and twist as hard as we can, causing a torrent of pops to come forth.

Maybe you can even spend the rest of the day coming up with new uses for Bubble Wrap yourself!” ^sPm – #sharpharmade Fr ‘Days of the Year’
