I have never really tried that.. and I really want to-- but my parents say I might get sick because rain is quite dirty since it comes from different bodies of water which are dirty [people throw garbage in them]... Bathing in the rain looks really dramatic in movies, though...[although it's fake rain] :D

Nobody bathes in the rain in Canada, it is a tradition that has never been followed mostly because it it too cold most of the year, and probably 99% of people have acess to indoor plumbing and hot water. I suppose during the summer on hot days it would be possible but then there are logistics to consider, like the right place to do it, do you have to be naked(?), and what happens if the rain stops while you are all soaped up like a previous poster. Pure rain is clean, after all it is distilled water. It is not dirty because of where it comes from, it might be dirty from the air it passes through though. It will pick up air pollution and dust as it passes through the air.

Hello Lady, I just love to do that. I often have umbrella but I keep it inside my bag. This way people around me thinks that I don't have one. This makes me look less of a psycho. Then I just enjoy every drop of it on my skin. I also love walking in the rain with a friend, someone very close. It enhances the mood, and gives it a new dimension. This has always been so exciting to me. Thanks for starting this wonderful discussion. God bless you

When i was a kid i use to bathed in the rain. The feeling or cold water all over my body that time was really something . Everytime its raining its more like a shower for me. I enjoyed every minute of it, but then again it wont last that long at all, i mean after 10 to 15 minutes the rain will stop and so is the good times that me and my friends are having ;)

Oh yeah when i was young we usually do that. It was lot of fun and i can say i really enjoyed my youth because of it. When heavy rains fall we immediately go out and have lots of fun. We roam around our villages and get to dance in the rain. If i were young again i will absolutely do that. That is something that i would like to experience again. Thats something a child shouldnt miss.. a simple joy taking a bathe in the rain.

Oh, I really love bathing in the rain! Unfortunately though, I am all grown up now and it would be stupid if I'll still bathe in the rain. I really love the feeling of being carefree will bathing in the rain. It gives me a calm feeling and inner peace. While others hate being wet by the rain, I, on the other hand, envy those who can still bathe in the rain and laugh while doing it. I miss those days...

Lol i once did that during heavy rain when i was 12 with 3 of my friends. We had so much fun. We were super dirty. We just took off our shirts and ran around, jumping into puddles on public streets. It was awesome!!

I love to play in the rain. Parents generally warn s not to go out in the rain because it shows effect on or health. We might get fever or caught with cold. Bu whatever happens to us playing in the rain is an awesome experience and one has to experience it. All those memories are sweet in my life and even now I feel like jumping in the rain while writing about it.

I can't believe that you haven't bathed in the rain!! It's not really mean that you bathed in the rain so you don't need to take a shower. Of course, you have to take a shower after. Letting yourself got wet in the rain is so much fun!! I think you missed the half part of your life. It's cool and fun!! I have had experiences like that with my friends and my sisters. It was memorable and interesting. You should try. I'll tell you. You have to feel sometimes the "rain".

when i was still young, i used to bathe a lot in the rain. dirty rain water wasnt as serious as it is now. it's really fun to bathe in the rain especially during heavy rainfall. my parents keep telling me to take a shower after bathing in the rain. it works though, no sickness at all.

hi! yes, i have bathed in the rain once but it was years ago, when i still was in the primary school and one day it was a heavy rain while I was coming home, and I was so wet that I actually began bathing in the rain!

Yes! I think all of the people have tried it, and i pity those who didn't experienced bathing in the rain. Whenever i think about the moment when i used to bathe in the rain together with my childhood friends my youth comes back and it makes me feel that it only happened yesterday. I really love rain and it should be that way forever.

Yes, I do. During my younger years when I was a child there were moments that I bathed in the rain. Now that I am quite busy with work, I barely have to do it. As you can see. I love those times when I bath in the rain. Its cool and fun. Now that I have a son, sometimes when the condition permits like when I am at home and have no work and its raining, I do go out and play with my son in the rain. Its a great bonding time for us and it would also bring back memories of my childhood.

There are points there for what your parents said. Nowadays the pollution becomes worse, hence the bodies of water is fairly dirty when they come from the sky. I don't want to bath in the rain.

I'm from the philippines. Our country is a tropical country. Most of the time during my childhood when it rains a go outside the house. Do some play with the mud thing. Yes. I experienced taking a bath with the rain. My mom also told me about that getting colds when you bathed in the rain but I believe it depends on your immune system and how long you are gonna be bathing in the rain.

As far as I am concerned, I think I have been just caught in the rain for so long a time. as for bathing in the rain, I think I will not try that. Just as waht you have said, it is not so clean for us to have a bath in the rain. Usually, the rain is so dirty,and may cause some disease in our daily life.

I haven't tried bathing in the rain yet, and i don't think i would be able to try it. Same as you, my parents didn't allow me either because they're scared I would get sick, but I was jealous of other kids before,that they seemed enjoying it while myself was just watching them!I am even wondering how would it feel to bathe in the rain...

I had tried this a long time ago. It's really fun and relaxing. It's advisable to bath in the rain if it's a heavy downpour. You also shouldn't stay too long in the rain because you may get sick. Nowadays it may be really bad for health to bath in the rain. This is due to our polluted earth. I hope people realize that we should have concern to our home planet, earth.
