History of International Bath Day
International Bath Day has been celebrated in remembrance of the Greek Scientist and Mathematician Archimedes. He discovered while bathing that an object’s volume can be determined by immersing it in water. The volume found using this method is accurate. The history goes this way, Archimedes dipped himself in a tub full of water and he found the water getting raised and splitting out of the tub. This made him exciting as it paved the way to find the volume of the object.
Immediately, he stood from the bathtub and ran saying “Eureka” “Eureka” which means “I found it”. This incident gave us the theory to find the volume of an object. As Archimede’s birth date is not known, People started to celebrate June 14 as it was believed to be the day when Archimedes found this theory. This day was determined by using the ancient method of determining the date. There is a saying that Archimedes found the theory exactly seven days before the day of summer which means 7 days prior to June 21st (As per the ancient calendar, June 21 is the day when the summer starts).
