I’m not so sure about this holiday. It was created by Ruth Spiro in 2006 as an idea for fundraisers for schools primarily, although it has been done in libraries and other locations where chewing gum is not normally allowed. My question is, are enough funds raised to cover the damage caused by allowing people to chew gum where they really shouldn’t? Bubble gum generally ends up with people making bubbles that explode or the gum flies out of the mouth in the effort to form it properly. Isn’t that sort of asking for trouble? Oh well, who am I to say.
How to celebrate – Go to your local school or library and chew some bubble gum. See how large you can get your bubble before it explodes. Remember to dispose of your gum properly.
