National Hug A Plumber Day
National Hug A Plumber Day is held on April 25 of every year. A plumber is one who installs and helps in maintaining the plumbing system used for drinking water, sewage and drainage. One fault in the system would turn any place upside down, which could be rescued only by a plumber. Plumbers ensure proper flow of water through pipes all over the house. Plumbers also do dirty works like cleaning the clogged toilets, repairing broken water pipes and so on. They must be appreciated for the work they are doing every day to keep others life easy. These jobs are often underestimated until something goes wrong in the system. Plumbers help in the system working smoothly. So hug a plumber as a sign of gratitude for the hard work they do to keep our living healthy and clean.
“A plumber is an adventurer who traces leaky pipes to their source.” – Arthur Baer
History of National Hug A Plumber Day
The origin of National Hug A Plumber Day is unknown. Although, there lies a fascinating tale for the plumber. The word plumber originates from the Roman empire. Roman roofs used lead for pipes, making baths, etc., and anyone who works with lead was called as plumbers during medieval time. Earlier people who were skilled in working with lead were called as Plumbarius later shortened to the plumber. With the improvement in infrastructure, the duties of the plumber grew as well. However, these workers must be appreciated for their skills, interests, and values. It is in the hands of plumbers to protect health and welfare of the nation.
