Origin of this Holiday
Our research did not find the creator, or the origin of this day.
It is possible this holiday may of been created by the greeting card industry because we find reference to it on greeting card sites but no reference to the background of the holiday. Such as- why the month of January was picked to celebrate this holiday or why the 8th day?? That's the question...

Definition of Bubble Bath
The term bubble bath can be used to describe aerated or carbonated baths, or to describe bathing with a layer of surfactant foam on the surface of the water and consequently also the surfactant product used to produce the foam.
Aerated and carbonated baths -- bubbles in water
Wikipedia encyclopedia tell us that "Bubbles in the water can be produced either by aerating it mechanically (in some cases using jets that also move the water) using equipment installed permanently or temporarily in a bathtub, hot tub, or pool, or by producing gas in the water in a bathtub through the use of effervescent solids. The latter can come as small pellets known as bath fizzies or as a bolus known as a bath bomb, and they produce carbon dioxide by reaction of a bicarbonate or carbonate with an organic acid.
Bath fizzies are infeasible as liquids because of the inability to keep the mixture from reacting prematurely. This is a distinction from foam bath (see below) preparations, which may be supplied as liquids or solids.
"When the term "bubble bath" is encountered on the Internet referring to a gas-infused bath or pool, it is more often by a non-native user of English who may not be aware of its use to refer to foam baths (see below)." "In other languages the distinction is more likely to be kept by use of different words."
Foam baths -- bubbles on top of water
"Bubbles on top of the water, less ambiguously known as a foam bath can be obtained by adding a product containing foaming surfactants to water and temporarily aerating it by agitation (often merely by the fall of water from a faucet)." "The practice is popular for personal bathing because the foam insulates the bath water, keeping it warm for longer, and (as a lime soap dispersant) prevents or reduces deposits on the bath tub at and below the water level (called "bathtub ring" and soap scum, respectively) produced by soap and hard water." "It can hide the body of the bather, preserving modesty or, in theatre and film, giving the appearance that a performer who is actually clothed is bathing normally. Children find foam baths particularly amusing, so they are an inducement to get them into the bathtub."
"Surfactant preparations for this purpose are themselves called "bath foam", "foaming bath", or "bubble bath", and frequently contain ingredients for additional purposes common to bath additives. Used at much higher concentration (for instance on a washcloth), such preparations (especially in liquid form) may also be used to wash skin or hair, so they are sometimes marketed for combined purposes; in a few cases, mild household detergents for hand washing of articles have also been labeled for such purposes, or for preventing soap scum on the bathtub (with or without foaming)."
"Effervescent bath products came into use as effervescent bath salts early in the 20th Century; the bath bomb became a popular form late in that century." "The earliest foam baths were foamed with soap, which practice came about shortly after soap flakes were marketed." "Saponins were also used to foam machine-aerated baths." "Foam baths became standard practice for bathing children etc.
