What tradition in other countries is similar to the siesta?
Siesta is a Spanish word that comes from the Latin sexta hora, meaning the sixth hour (after dawn), so a midday nap, usually after the meal.
The siesta probably began in Spain, and then spread to many Latin American countries. The heat of the midday sun, as well as a midday meal would both contribute to its popularity.
It is found in many Latin American countries (except Brazil), as well as in the Philippines, China, Vietnam, Bangladesh, India, Southern Italy, Greece, Croatia, Malta, the Middle East and North Africa.
In Bangladesh and Indian Bengal it is called bhat-ghum, literally meaning "rice-sleep".
In China and Taiwan it is called wujiao. Most Chinese schools have a half-hour nap programmed straight after lunch.
Some businesses in Japan set aside napping rooms for their office workers.
Islam suggests an afternoon sleep between Dhuhr and Asr prayers.
With air conditioning becoming more widespread, people are now working through the day.
