National Napping Day is celebrated annually on the day following the return of daylight saving time. This day is marked to give people the opportunity to catch up on the hour of sleep they lost after the clocks are set an hour ahead.

Here are some quotes taken from Brainy Quote to share with those who love to take a nap:
