It is believed that Be Late For Something Day was created by the Procrastinators' Club of America, an organization as a way to allow people to take a break from their busy daily schedules.

Don't Rush

In today's world, most people spend their lives rushing and hurrying, always fighting against the clock. This unofficial holiday asks people to slow down; take a breath and savor the world around them; and enjoy the small pleasures of life. Stop and smell the roses, if you will.

Be Late For Something Day is also known as National Be Late For Something Day in the United States.

How to Celebrate?

  • Be late to something on purpose. But be considerate to the people who are waiting for you - call them ahead and let them know you are running late.

Did You Know…

…that the use of the term, late, to refer to a deceased person, dates back to the late 15th century?
