Hammock Day

Tuesday, July 22, 2014

Hammock Day

Date when celebrated: Always on July 22nd.

Summer is in full swing. It's time to slow down and to relax. During the Dog Days of summer (and all of the other summer days, too), there is no better place to slow down and relax, than on a hammock.

Hammock Day is appropriately celebrated right in the middle of the Dog Days of summer (July 3 though August 11th).

Hammock Day exists to enjoy summer as it should be enjoyed. People celebrate Hammock Day by spending as much time relaxing on it as possible. Getting out of your hammock to get a snack, or your favorite summer beverage is okay. But, it is not a day for work. Cutting the lawn is forbidden on this day.

The roots of Hammock Day and Hammock Day history is largely unknown. Maybe the originator was too busy napping on his or her hammock!?!

    We had a hammock when I was a youngster. I got caught in it and always had to be helped out. I just don't like them.... Give me a good big ol' recliner any day. lol
