Celebrated on July 22nd
The hammock has a rather rich history. The first use of this dates back all the way to the time of the Mayans. One of earth’s earliest civilizations, the Mayans were the first to make use of the suspended bed. This relaxation item has stood the rest of time simply because of how relaxing it is. There’s no other reason why it exists? Its simply put, one of the more convenient and simple ways to relax. Plus at the time, and we’re talking about Ancient civilization times, it did protect you from snakes and other poisonous animals.
Today’s hammocks are synonymous with lazy days, cat naps and summer relaxation. Still used by campers for easy suspended sleep while in the woods (the same reasons the Mayans used them in the first place), there are many modern varieties available for leisure use. Hammocks can be found in backyards, pool side or swinging on a beach. The hammock stand makes it portable and available for use anywhere.
