Yes folks, 2016 is another Leap Year meaning an extra day is tacked onto February, the shortest month of the year, to make up for the about six extra hours the Earth takes to get around the sun each year (six hours every four years makes up an extra day).
And so, a lot of whacky traditions have sprung up around the day, not including people who are born on Leap Day walking around saying, “Ha, ha, today’s my sixth birthday.”
Traditions such as in Ireland and Britain where women get to propose marriage to men. We in the U.S. picked up the tradition and called it Sadie Hawkins Day.
And then there’s, uhm, well, some other traditions include, uhm.
Ok that’s about it. And really, in the 21st century who is going to keep women from asking men to marry them whenever they want?
You know what Leap Days really needs? Some more traditions. Luckily we at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa are ready to fill the need.
How about a tradition of a quick getaway to Borgata complete with deals on our classic rooms in Borgata’s Leap Day package which includes:
“Hey, what should we get Dad?”
“How about a bathrobe so he won’t wander around on Christmas morning in that ugly plaid thing.”
“Yeah, since he lost the belt for that, it’s been kind of rough. But where can we get a nice one?”
“That’s great. Problem solved. Does ShopBorgata have anything that would be good for Aunt Tilly?”
“Of course it does.”
Hey it could happen. But what can easily happen is visiting ShopBorgata.com and finding some great holiday gift ideas. And that 25 percent off holiday sale wasn’t imaginary, it’s real.
You have to love the marketing genius that came up with the Christmas in July concept. Here it is like 101 degrees outside, and people are buying holiday lights, little Santa ornaments, Christmas hams, special spa treatments at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa.
Yes, it’s a holiday bonanza and there’s still time to take advantage as you can book a special session at our spas through July 31—the session itself can be scheduled anytime Monday through Thursday through September 30. It’s everything you love about Christmas without the cold weather
Here’s what’s on the Flash sale menu:
Christmas in July Body Wrap: $110/50 minutes
Allow your body to drink in our fully hydrating wrap that takes you to the point of complete relaxation. We’ll prepare your journey with a full body dry brush exfoliation, massage your scalp while you’re wrapped in the scents of cardamom and spice, and then luxuriate your body with vanilla hydrating lotion.
After all, the DC comics hero The Flash wouldn’t sound as cool if his name was “That Fast Guy in the Red Suit.” We flash smiles, flash back to the past, flash forward and flash into view.
Right now, Borgata’s spas are having a flash sale, which means you have to move quickly—you know, in a flash. Book any of these spa specials at Spa Immersion and Spa Toccare between now and May 22. Appointments are available from May 26 to June 25. Call 609.317.7555 for reservations.
Here’s the specials with not a flash in the pan among them.
Go Coconuts for Massage ($110/50 min)
Indulge yourself in the scent of summer – coconut will fill the air as hydration engulfs your skin. Using real coconut, we’ll exfoliate your back at the end of this relaxing massage. Treatment includes complimentary Epicuren Kukui Coconut travel size lotion (retail value $15).
Holiday shopping can be a hectic thing, what with the traffic, the crowds, trying to find a parking spot in the same area code as the store you wanted to visit and so on. And who doesn’t love 78 consecutive hours of canned mall Christmas music? (2,700 versions of “Jingle Bells” and counting.)
At this point, you’re probably thinking that we at the Borgata Blog are about to plug a nice little getaway to Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa for a relaxing, stress-free, pre-holiday break. Which is great—especially if you take advantage of our monthly spa specials.
But there’s an even easier way to allow Borgata to take some of the crazy out of holiday shopping. And that’s to Shop Borgata from home at our online store. And from now to December 28, ShopBorgata.com is offering a holiday sale or 25 percent off on all items.
That includes all of ShopBorgata.com’s category’s from the Gifts of Comfort (bedding, blankets, sheets), to items for the Spa Connoisseur (robes, aromatherapy) to gifts for the Foodie (cookbooks, margarita glasses, aprons).
It’s an impressive list of online items at great prices that you can check out here.
