History of Rain Day
It is a day that has been celebrated for quite some time. In fact, Rain Day was first held in the late 1800s. We have to thank a pharmacist named William Allison for that. He had a drugstore located on High Street, the main street in Waynesburg, Pennsylvania. He noticed that it always seemed to rain on July 29th.
For this reason, he decided to keep annual records of rainfall for this specific date. After twenty years, his brother Albert Allison continued recording the results.
In the 1930s, John O'Hara decided to send stories about Rain Day to the newspapers. Thanks to that, Rain Day spread to all corners of the world. Every year, newspapers and other media often call Waynesburg to find out if it is raining on this day.

You can celebrate Rain Day in many different ways. If you happen to live near Waynesburg, you will definitely want to take a trip to the town and celebrate. However, if you don't live anywhere near this part of the world, it doesn't mean you can't celebrate. If it's raining in your area, why not dance in the rain? There is something incredibly uplifting about it.
