National Housewife Day
Are you a homemaker or a stay-at/respected mom? National Housewife Day can help you combat the feeling that you’re not being appreciated for your efforts. Perhaps you’re the husband of a housewife and have been accused of underestimating how hard it takes to keep a home clean, organized, and a few kids well-behaved. This day is for you, regardless of your gender.
This event was created to recognize the housewife’s tireless efforts in transforming a house into a home. It has grown in popularity over recent years. Being a housewife (our husband) is often seen as an easy way out in today’s career-driven society. People are slowly realizing that even though someone is home most of the day, it doesn’t mean that they spend all day doing their nails and sleeping until noon. And that running a home takes a lot of work.
It is not possible to pinpoint the exact date when National Housewife Day was established. However, many believe it was created by a housewife who felt a little jaded or unappreciated. The idea gained momentum quickly, given the large number of housewives who have lived in the same household for many centuries.
This day is traditionally celebrated by the homemaker or housewife. You can treat yourself to a day at the spa if you’re a stay-at home wife or husband. For all the floors you’ve swept, all the diapers you changed, and all the meals you’ve made, you deserve it! Don’t feel guilty. Everyone needs a break from time to time. And don’t let anyone tell your otherwise.
If you have children, find someone to look after them. Then, take the day off and relax. You can read a book, get a massage, or simply enjoy a cup of coffee or wine while you don’t have to worry about what you need to do or if you’ll have the time. You are the focus of this day, so take time to relax and recharge your batteries in order to be ready for tomorrow.
If you’re one of those fortunate husbands or wife who manages the house, treating your partner to a nice dinner or a weekend away will show that you appreciate the hard work involved in taking care of the place and that you trust your spouse for it.
Make sure National Housewife Day doesn’t happen only once a calendar year just because it falls on a particular day. No matter what job they do, one day a year is not enough. To keep your spirits high, do whatever you can to celebrate Housewife Day at least once a month!
