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.”
