It all started with our ancestors long before Jesus lay in his first bed a crip !
The very first "beds" were just a piece of fur or some hay or straw. The latter was not very enjoyable, as bugs, fleas and other cute critters wanted to sleep with you. The human became inventive and put wooden legs under a plank. That made it a little more difficult for unwanted bed companions. By then somebody thought if he would cover the straw or hay with a fabric it would be more protected.Then the bed frames were invented.
And the creativity for beds went on and on
until we had this kind of bed. Of course it was not for everybody it was only for the nobels. They needed a good sleep to be able to manage their servants, who slept on very simplified beds.
The bed was not only a place to sleep peacefully during the night, it was also a battle field for couples to produce babies that's why we are all here today.
Especially in winter time or wet weather the bed as battle field replaced other places like fields, grass, benches or nowadays cars.
Unfortunately the bed is not only a place of pleasure, but also a place where you have to lay down when you are sick or even die. That's the bad side of our beds.
Wherever you live in the world, beds are standing in your home. Modern or antique ones it depends on your taste.
With that I wish you a good night !
