Summary
Today’s reason to celebrate reminds us to slow down, breathe easy and enjoy these beautiful summer months.

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!

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.
