National Lumpy Rug Day
National Lumpy Rug Day is an annual celebration held on May 3. Decorating home with cute little yet colourful things will add little more beauty and elegance to the living space. Rugs are one among them which has been weaved with different colours, patterns, designs, sizes, and shape. The manufacturing of rugs varies from every region and culture. Those rugs give us so much of comfort on the floor and of course for your cats and dogs. Spring is the best time to clean or wash them, and you can even purchase a new one if they are found to be lumpy. National Lumpy Rug Day gives a good reminder for all of us to replace those old lumpy rugs by soft, smooth rugs to stay comfortable.
“When someone beats a rug, the blows are not against the rug, but against the dust in it.” – Rumi

Also, it is a reminder for anyone to clean all dirt from the used rugs as a way of spring cleaning. Secondly, the encourages you to sweep off the unwanted facts and problems that you don’t want to deal with the term “under the rug.” Let the reason falls according to your views, but the celebration is only for the rugs. A rug must be smooth, even, and definitely not lumpy. So take off those lumpy rugs to replace with a new one.
