June 19th World Sauntering Day

Confidence, style, fashion and attitude all make up the world of sauntering. Sauntering is walking with style, not just any style but a casual yet fashionable style like they use to walk during the Victorian days. It was walking with a purpose and that purpose was to look good while walking. Today we tend to just walk to get where we are going, the quicker the better for the most part. But if you saunter you are making a statement as you walk, sure… you may arrive too late to get where you are going and you may make anyone wait caught behind you, but what’s more important… your saunter or someone’s else suffering for it! Today was created by W.T. Rabe of Mackinac Island, Michigan in the 1970’s.

How to celebrate – Walk with style. Dress up in Victorian clothing so everyone knows why you are sauntering. Make sure to carry your umbrella!
