6/1, GO BAREFOOT DAY

Feet aching after a long week? Today is the day to kick off your shoes. It's National Go Barefoot Day! Embrace the beginning of the summer season and join people across the country in this shoe-free celebration.


National Go Barefoot Day was launched by a non-profit organization called Soles4Souls. The real purpose behind this quirky holiday is to encourage people to donate new and used shoes to the victims of natural disasters. Take a moment to do a little spring cleaning and give away the shoes you no longer need. You can even organize a shoe drive in your community.


Whether you’re at work or not, find a way to rebel against shoes, be it running barefoot through the grass and pampering your feet, or kicking off your shoes under your desk at work when your boss isn’t looking.


Looking for other ways to celebrate Go Barefoot Day? Enjoy a barefoot walk on the beach or treat yourself to a pedicure! Enjoy!

6/10, ICED TEA DAY

Annually celebrated on June 10, it is National Iced Tea Day. It is set aside to celebrate one of summer’s favorite drinks. Whether it is sweetened or unsweetened, with or without lemon, it is loved by many and enjoyed by the glass full all summer long.


Iced tea can be found in many flavors including lemon, peach, raspberry, lime, passions fruit, strawberry and cherry.


An alternative to carbonated soft drinks and very popular in the United States, iced tea makes up about 85% of all tea consumed. It can readily be found in restaurants, convenience stores, vending machines, grocery stores and self-serve soda fountains.


Recipes for iced tea have been found dating back to the 1870′s. The Buckeye Cookbook, published in 1876 and Housekeeping in Old Virginia, published in 1877 both contain iced tea recipes. It is believed however, that iced tea started to appear in the United States in the 1860′s and became widespread in the 1870′s where it was found offered on hotel menus and was on sale at railroad stations. The popularity of this refreshing drink grew rapidly after it was introduced at the 1904 World’s Fair in St. Louis.


“Tea has been historically promoted for having a variety of positive health benefits. Recent human studies suggest that green tea may help reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease and some forms of cancer, promote oral health, reduce blood pressure, help with weight control, improve antibacterial and antiviral activity, provide protection from solar ultraviolet light, increase bone mineral density, and have “anti-fibrotic properties, and neuroprotective power.” (Wikipedia)


Enjoy a nice TALL glass of iced tea to celebrate !!

6/19, World Sauntering Day

World Sauntering Day is celebrated on June 19, 2015. The purpose of World Sauntering Day is to remind us to take it easy, smell the roses, to slow down and enjoy life as opposed to rushing through it. It is also sometimes referred to as International Sauntering Day.

Sauntering is a verb to describe a style of walking; it is not a sashay, prance, trot, or lollygag. Simply it is to walk slowly preferably with a joyful disposition.
