National Be Late For Something Day
annually on September 5th (since 1956)
Procrastinators' Club of America in 1956
This is a day dedicated to being late for something. People are late for things all the time, and this day finally gives them an excuse. The day was created by the Procrastinator's Club of America, shortly after the group's founding in 1956. The day was created not so people could be late for the sake of being late, but so they would use that time to relax and take in their surroundings.
