Housewife’s Day

Housewife’s Day is celebrated on November 3rd of each year.  The staff at National Whatever Day were unable to locate the origins of Housewife’s Day.  If you have any additional information on Housewife’s Day, we would love to hear from you.

Housewife is a term used to describe a married female who is not employed outside of the home or a married woman who is in charge of her household.  It is also a term first used in the 18th century to refer to sewing or mending kit where people usually kept toiletries, and is still used to describe a soldiers personal sewing kit.

In today’s society, being a housewife is often seen as something only the uneducated do.  This is entirely unfair.  When you look at all the things housewives do on a daily basis, the amount of respect goes up drastically.  If not, well, you may want to live a day in the life of a housewife.

Housewives clean the house, cook the meals, take care of the children, run errands and often take care of the family budget.  There never seem to be enough hours in the day of a housewife.  So, show your housewife a little bit of love and give her the day off, maybe even send her to the spa for the day.
