National Napping Day is an unofficial holiday celebrated annually on the day right after clocks are set to the daylight savings time. The holiday has one purpose: to give everyone a chance to catch up on the sleep they lost after the clocks are set an hour ahead.

National Napping Day can be traced back to 1999 when William Anthony, a professor at Boston University, and his wife Camille decided to create a day that would help highlight the importance and benefits of a nap. They agreed to have the holiday on the Monday after Daylight Savings Time since they thought the Americans needed a nap after having lost an hour due to DST. The decision was widely appreciated by the sleep-deprived Americans and was celebrated enthusiastically by them.
