About Festival of Sleep Day

When is Festival of Sleep Day? This holiday is always celebrated on January 3.

No, you are not dreaming. But, perhaps you should be. Festival of Sleep Day is today, a January 3 holiday. It is an opportunity to sleep in, snooze, doze, nap, and catch 40 winks. Sleepover parties are encouraged today. Because this is a festival day, make sure to include a list of fun activities.

We feel this is the perfect date for the Festival of Sleep Day. The holidays are over…Wow, weren’t they exhausting? It’s cold and snowy…. time to hibernate. And, why not recharge 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 it’s 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 group sleeps.

Caution: Sleeping at work is recommended today, only with the approval of management. However, a management-sponsored nap is perfectly okay. The only other exception is for mattress testers.

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

How to Celebrate Festival of Sleep Day

  • Take a nap.
  • In the office, darken a conference room and invite your group to take a nap after lunch.
  • Cozy up on the couch or in bed with someone… and sleep.
  • Have a sleepover party.
  • Include a pillow fight on the list of festival activities.
  • Share your dreams or nightmares.
  • Too tied to organize a festival? Then, just take a nap.
