Monday's Memo: It's N'tl Napping day!

I beg to differ with Mooch on this first Monday in Day Light Savings Time (DLST) the future is getting here fast enough...

Btw, I've written about the Mutts comic strip as well as it's creator in a number of entries here on Blogger and I've also written about DLST. For Mutts click here, for DLST click here. On another note, the Monday after the onset of DLST is a holiday!

Cam (the cardinal who is the story-teller in my Words In Our Beak book series)...

... is the one brought it to my attention (last year) that any Monday occurring after the onset of DLST, is considered to be a holiday known as National Napping Day.

She is taking a nap (in the next picture)...

... under the 'Tamukeyama' which grows in a container that's within my rooftop garden). This is a picture of Cam that you might recognize as I've featured it in a prior posts here in cyber-space, and if you have read volume one of her book series, you might recall that it is featured at the conclusion of her story.

In any event, according to a web-page, "National Napping Day is observed annually the day following the return of daylight saving time. National Napping Day provides everyone with the opportunity to have a nap and catch up on the hour of sleep they lost due to the spring forward time change."

The aforementioned page goes on to explain the history of this holiday stating: "William Anthony, Ph.D., a Boston University Professor and his wife, Camille Anthony, created National Napping Day in 1999 as an effort to spotlight the health benefits to catching up on quality sleep."

Anthony and his wife proclaim,“We chose this particular Monday because Americans are more ‘nap-ready’ than usual after losing an hour of sleep to daylight saving time."

I confess that I've never heard of National Napping Day, but there is no time like the present to take advantage of it! And just to make sure that I don't miss any more National Napping Days going forward, I've made a list of when they will occur in the coming years.

I've posted the list below for your convenience, dear reader:
