They're doing this in a town in Spain.  Not kidding.  The mayor has decreed it.  Would you go for this? 

The town is Ador, Spain.  If you happen to visit there any day at around 3PM, you might be on your own, because everyone will be inside snoozing.  The mayor, Joan Faus Vitoria has declared, according to, that everyone has to take a siesta between 2 and 5 PM.

According to the article

"Everything closes between 2pm and 5pm," says a spokesman. "Bars, shops, the swimming pool, everything." The mayor even told children to remain indoors during the napping hours so they don't disturb their slumbering elders.

Do you think you would be more productive if you took a little nappy-poo in the afternoon? I actually believe that it does help. But 3 hours a day??  That part I don't get.  How do you possibly sleep at nite?  And does this mean that the entire work day in Spain starts at 9am and ends at 2PM?  Holy tacos.  If so, I think I have to take some Spanish courses quick.

Ok, I'm exhausted thinking about this.  I need a nap.
