Summer is slowly reaching its peak, and so is everyone’s patience with the weather. Hot Enough For Ya Day, celebrated on July 23, is a way to make light of the balmy and muggy heat. Summer days and nights are usually filled with hot and humid atmospheres with extremely high temperatures. During this time, people tend to lose interest in their daily activities because of how overwhelmingly hot the weather is. Many also avoid going out in fear of getting heatstroke. But all is not doom and gloom with the summer weather. You can plan interesting activities that revolve around making the most of the summer, and you can start all this by asking the question, ‘Is it hot enough for ya?’.
History of Hot Enough For Ya Day
It is uncertain as to who or when the first Hot Enough For Ya Day was started, but one thing is clear: Someone somewhere was quite fed up with the hot weather that they went around asking people “Hot enough for ya?” for the fun of it. The peak months for summer in the northern hemisphere are June, July, and August. During these months, many countries experience heat waves and mid to high levels of humidity. Some places also go through sandstorms and monsoon rains. People tend to avoid these summer conditions by either staying indoors or venturing out only when it becomes extremely necessary and important. As peak summer hits, things like heat stroke, suffocation, high blood pressure, and muscle cramps go on the rise.
So, you are stuck at home due to the weather, and you don’t feel like doing anything? Don’t worry because National Today has got your back! You can start your day with things that will cool you down. It could be eating a bowl of ice cream or drinking a cold glass of lemonade. Swimming is another great option. For centuries now, people have been making a beeline for water bodies to cool themselves down. A splash in the water does the trick when nothing else works. Furthermore, if swimming is not your go-to thing, you can still make it a fun day by traveling to cooler regions of the world during this time of the year. Spending a few days or weeks in colder countries will uplift your mood automatically. If all else still fails, do not worry, just do whatever floats your boat within the cool vicinity of your homes.
