Today, Monday, January 25, 2010 marks Bubble Wrap Appreciation day. Yes, even bubble wrap deserves its day, and back in 2001 the first ever day to honor the popular packing material was started. And what's not to appreciate about bubble wrap? It's been known as a cheap gift as a stress reliever medication. Simply pop one when you're feeling stressed. It's also great to step on, and of course package fragile items. Everyone has use for bubble wrap. Right about now the clown in the Walmart clown commercial is wishing he had stepped on bubble wrap, because it's a lot less painful!

Bubble Wrap appreciation day began in 2001, when "Sprint 95" Radio, an FM station in Indiana, unveiled a Bubblympiad, a sort of Olympics of Bubble Wrap. This event included a "Pop-A-Mole" game, Bubble wrap popping relay contest, as well as sculpture and fashion design contests. Since then, the day has become an annual holiday, because after all there's a holiday for everything these days!

There wouldn't even be a Bubble wrap appreciation day if it weren't invented. That distinction goes to Marc Chavannes and Al Fielding. The duo wanted to create a plastic wallpaper with paper backing. Although that didn't work out, what they discovered was a very cushiony packing material. They raised some seed money to bring about a developmental product line, and eventually formed the Sealed Air Corporation in 1960. And hence, bubble wrap was unleashed on the world, becoming commonplace today!

So are you celebrating Bubble Wrap appreciation day? If nothing else pop a bubble or two in honor of today's annual holiday!

Oh, I'm positively obsessive about popping bubble wrap. We got rolls of the really good kind when we were shipped some easels for a DU banquest. ROLLS of it! :jmp: So I will definitely be appreciating it today in style.

I love popping bubblewrap! I remember I once went to a shop to buy dishes and stuff, and I asked the cashier to hand me more bubblewrap than necessary. :pi:
