National Napping Day is snoozed on the day after the return of daylight saving time to give folks the chance to catch up on the hour of sleep that they lost out on when clocks changed to the spring time.
A Boston University professor, William Anthony, has been credited with the origin of the event in 1999, primarily to emphasize on the import of sleep. Anthony is reported to have said, “We chose this particular Monday because Americans are more ‘nap-ready’ than usual after losing an hour of sleep to daylight saving time.”

KELLOGG ON CROSSCURRENTS, 2/26: Medical doctor and health-food innovator whose creation of dry breakfast cereals was responsible for the formation of the flaked-cereal industry, John Harvey Kellogg was born on this date in 1852. You are invited to settle down with a bowl of your favorite flakes for a Kellogg birthday and breakfast tunes on Crosscurrents, 2/26 at 8 am. ( radio link: http://www.krnn.org )
Corn flakes were not really tasty because of its poor taste and hence, John’s brother Will tried to introduce some sugar into the mix. John did not agree and hence, Will separately started selling the cereals by adding sugar. It was Will Kellogg who actually set up the business and formed the Kellogg company. John sued his brother and lost the case.
As John Kellogg thought, the corn flakes did not really suppress the urge for “self-exploration” and those who still enjoy corn flakes think that the addition of sugar was really a good idea as at least corn flakes became palatable.
