I think that now we have less time than the past years, the time flyes now and the shower takes less time. I haven't had a bath in years. Don't worry, I took showers.

Yes, it's more practical, although I know a hot bath in the evening makes you sleep like a baby. :)

The two words differ, but you are basically doing the same thing and that's washing your body. I think that when it comes to time length, that it goes either ways. I personally don't like taking baths but showers are great! I tend to be in the shower for 20-30 minutes wasting up the hot water and then my parents get mad at me sometimes.

Theoretically A bath is supposed to be had with a bucket or in a tub with lots of water and soaping. a shower is just putting a few mugs of water on yourself or standing under a wall shower for a while with minimal or no use of soap. so therefore a shower is supposed to take less time.

A bath is in a tub full of water, a shower is standing up underneath pouring water. Some bathtubs have built in showers, but they are still very different.
