Summary
Find out the dates, history and traditions of National Hammock Day

The word hammock comes from the Caribbean, via Spanish, from a Taíno culture Arawakan word meaning "stretch of cloth".

Christopher Columbus, in the narrative of his first voyage, says: “A great many Indians in canoes came to the ship today for the purpose of bartering their cotton, and hamacas, or nets, in which they sleep.”

He observed the widespread use of hammocks during his travels among the Taino people in the Bahamas
