Festival of Sleep Day

Thursday, January 03, 2013

emoticon Festival of Sleep Day emoticon

When: Always on January 3rd

No, you are not dreaming. But, perhaps you should be. Festival of Sleep Day is today. It is an opportunity to sleep in, snooze, doze, nap, and catch 40 winks.

We feel this is the perfect date for Festival of Sleep Day. The holidays are over...Wow, weren't they exhausting! It's cold and snowy.... time to hibernate. And, why not re-charge the batteries as a new year of school and work begins?

Festival of Sleep Day is a favorite holiday to catch up on a little sleep. Whether its all day, a full 8 hours, or just a power nap, enjoy the day sleeping. Cozy up in bed on the couch, or any other comfortable place. Oh.... don't forget your favorite stuffed animal. It's okay to sleep alone, sleep alone or with someone else. We do not recommend groups sleeps.

Caution: Sleeping at work is not recommended, today, or any day. The only exception is for mattress testers.

Warning #2: The Surgeon General has determined that sleeping is good for your health.

Origin of Festival of Sleep Day:

Our research on this day failed to uncover the origin of this sleepy day. Perhaps the founders were too groggy to properly record the very first Festival of Sleep Day.

Note: There is some reference to Sleep Week in March.

    That's the only good thing about being unemployed. I don't have to be anywhere at an early hour and can nap any time. I just hope a new work schedule doesn't ruin this new life style!

  Hmmm... thought the day would occur on the day of Daylight Savings Time in the spring. An extra hour of sleep on that day.
