Did you know that the July 22nd is Hammock Day?

Summer is in full swing. It’s time to slow down and to relax. During the Dog Days of summer 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. Cutting the lawn or doing any yard work is forbidden on this day. And don’t forget the bug spray. The mosquitoes are fierce this time of year.
