‘National Housewife’s Day’ sets aside November 3rd to recognize the millions of hardworking housewives. The day honors the stay-at-home moms who take care of the children and the home. It’s a 24/7 job that sometimes does not get the thank you that is much deserved.
The History Behind ‘National Housewife Day’
Being a housewife is not an easy job rather it’s a big-time responsibility & duty that women perform every day. A homemaker or housewife is a person who is in charge of taking care of the home while their partner is out at work.
But the term is not only limited to a wife or a mother. In modern society, the term applies to any gender who works hard to keep their home in order. It can be a man, an adult parent, or any other member of the family.
But historically, the term homemaker usually denotes to wife or matriarch of a family.
The exact date when Housewife Day was first celebrated is not clear. But many believe that the day was created by a housewife who was feeling underappreciated for her hard work. Although the day is still not as popular as other holidays, it indeed has made significant progress in terms of the idea.
How Can We Celebrate This Day?
The celebrations of the day are subjective and can vary from person to person. But there are some basic things that you can do to make your homemaker feel special and loved.
Just take charge of all the household work – cooking, cleaning, taking care of kids – for a day or more. Give your partner the rest she deserves. If you are not skilled enough to carry out all the work, get some external help to do it.
It’s even better if you take on the responsibility of the house on an alternate day basis or weekly basis.
