National Ice Cream Day

Did you know that yesterday was officially National Ice Cream Day??? How did I miss it? I am one of ice cream's number one fans! Anyway, read all about it here.

What other fascinating holidays am I missing?

Hammock Day

When: Always on July 22nd.

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.

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. But, it is not a day for work. Cutting the lawn is forbidden on this day.

The roots of Hammock Day and Hammock Day history is largely unknown. Maybe the originator was too busy napping on his or her hammock!?!

(Now, if I just had a Hammock, 2 trees, and some leftover ice cream)
