Statistics say that most people hate to collect bed linen… There is scientific evidence that this is not so useful! In any case, December 21 is worth relaxing and learning more about the date.


A unique holiday appeared thanks to one schoolboy from the state of New Mexico. He wrote in the petition that his name is Shannon and he has been making the bed since he was 4 years old. The request was modest and direct – to organize 1 day a year when it is allowed to omit the process. The date was not chosen by chance: December 21 is the shortest day of the year, people go to bed earlier. The boy initially approached the local senator, but he was busy with business and did not pay attention to the infantile appeal. Shannon admits that he is personally allowed not to make the bed, but he was worried about other people.
