Date When Celebrated : This holiday is always held on July 22.
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 under a shady tree.
Hammock Day is appropriately celebrated right in the middle of the Dog Days of summer (July 3 though August 11th).
Hammock Day exists to celebrate and enjoy summer as it should be enjoyed. People celebrate Hammock Day by spending as much time relaxing on it as possible. There's a wide variety of hammocks. Most notably, single and double hammocks. The doubles exist so you can lounge today with someone special. 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.
Today's Quote: "
If you think you are too small to make a difference, try sleeping with a
mosquito." - - Dalai Lama
Hammock Day was created by Bob Matthews, of Holiday Insights in 2008. Bob says that our lives are normally busy and hectic. Summers is a special time to lay back, enjoy the weather and re-charge our batteries. What better way to do this, than from the comfort of a hammock under a shady tree!?
Some websites have erroneously reported this as a "National" day. According to Bob Matthews, the creator of Hammock Day, this IS NOT a "National" day. If you see it posted anywhere as a national day, we'd sure appreciate if you would contact the webmaster to have it corrected.
Definition of "National" Days - and why it so important to distinguish and identify true national days.
