World Sauntering Day
Date When Celebrated : This holiday is always observed on June 19
World Sauntering Day is a day to saunter here and there, wherever you go.
You can spend your life walking through life, jogging through life, or being dragged through life. But, life is far more enjoyable, if you saunter through it. Its doubly true if you saunter with a friend or loved one.
Sauntering is not a walk, jog, trot, or run. Sauntering is a form of strolling. Sauntering is a very casual, yet stylish, form of movement from point A to Point B. The dictionary defines sauntering as walking along slowly, happily and aimlessly. Now, doesn't this sound like a grand way to get around?
On World Sauntering Day, practice your sauntering technique. Saunter everywhere you go.
The History and Origin of World Sauntering Day:
This day was created in the 1970's by W. T. Rabe at Mackinac Island, Michigan while he was the Public Relations Director for a hotel on the island. Rabe was well known for his publicity stunts. Rabe describe it as "the lost art of Victorian sauntering."
