Hammock is a symbol of summer and relaxation. The day is celebrated annually on the 22nd of July. Hammock is a sling that is made out of fabric, net or rope which is suspended between two trees or any anchor points. The origin of hammock goes back to ancient Mayans of Central and South America. They used it for sleeping. Later they were used by sailors to add more comfort and then by mothers to contain babies. People today use hammocks on their camping trips as they are luxurious, easy to carry and take up less space. According to some people, the best way to spend the dog days of summer is in a hammock under a shady tree because according to them there is no better way to relax than slinging on a hammock.
