Picture this: it's mid-July, the sun shines as you rest on a hammock, completely relaxed. This is the essence of Hammock Day.
Today’s reason to celebrate reminds us to slow down, breathe easy and enjoy these beautiful summer months. Though its exact origins are unknown, it is said that hammocks originated hundreds of years ago in South America. Allegedly, the journals of Christopher Columbus provide the first documentation of the hammock. However, some sources attribute this invention to the Ancient Greeks. One thing is for sure—hammocks have always been symbols of leisure.
Today, take a few minutes to sit back and unwind on a hammock. There's no better way to celebrate Hammock Day! Grab a cool drink and a good book, or lie back for a much needed nap. Happy Hammock Day!
