About Public Sleeping Day
When is Public Sleeping Day? This holiday is always celebrated on February 28
Public Sleeping Day is a February 28 holiday. It is an opportunity to sleep in public. We can think of a whole lot of places to sleep in the public eye. And, today is the day to do it. People have been snoozing out in public since the dawn of time. However, this holiday has been around for just a few years. With all hours Americans work and their busy lives, being tired is an everyday occurrence. Some days you’re exhausted, and just want to put the world on pause for a twenty-minute cat nap. Go ahead! That’s what today is all about.
You can sleep on a park bench. You can doze on a blanket on the beach. Some people may opt to sleep on the job. They do so at their own risk. Have you ever caught twenty winks on a bus or subway traveling to or from work? Sure, we all have.
Wherever you choose to sleep today, we hope it is peaceful and restful.
How to Celebrate Public Sleeping Day
- Snooze on a park bench.
- Spread a blanket out on a park lawn. Have a picnic. Then, take a nap on the blanket.
