Everybody On Twitter Loves A Rainy Bank Holiday


1. So today was a Bank Holiday in England and Wales.

2. It gave us a much-needed three-day weekend to see friends, have barbecues, or just kick back and relax.

3. Of course, traditionally it rains on a Bank Holiday.

4. This time, the weather didn’t disappoint.

5. Most traditional Bank Holiday activities were cancelled because of the weather.

6. But, weirdly, not many people on Twitter seemed to mind.

Classic bank holiday for the UK. Rain everywhere! I shall remain snuggled in a hoodie and lounge pants. Happy bank holiday y'all!

10. In fact, some people seemed to actively enjoy it.

Love a cosy Bank Holiday. On the sofa naked with a cup of coffee while rain patters against the window and DFS security call the police.

13. Even those who decided to brave the bad weather seemed undeniably chipper.

16. Although some chose… poorly.

As bad decisions go, a trip to Ikea on a Bank Holiday Monday is up there with when Napoleon last tried to invade Russia.

19. On the whole, though, people seemed to enjoy the chance to stay in, put their feet up, and basically doze in front of the TV.

22. Except for this alpaca at the Horniman Museum in London, who doesn’t look like he’s having the best time. But he doesn’t count, because he’s not on Twitter.

Latest arrival at @HornimanMuseum. Baby alpaca isn't at all perturbed by bank holiday rain #london
