National Homemaker Day is celebrated annually on November 3, the holiday is dedicated to people who do homework every day, and also encourages everyone to think about how important and difficult this work is. It’s time to say thank you to the person who in your house took on the responsibility of cleaning, washing, buying groceries, and cooking.
In today’s society, household chores can be handled by a spouse. Also, a housewife can be a person who comes to the family to perform assigned tasks, for example, to raise children. In the past, the role of a housewife was traditionally performed by a wife, a nanny. For example, in the 19th century, a woman had to maintain cleanliness and comfort in the house, to be the keeper of the family hearth. The woman was a symbol of peace and tranquility for her husband and children.
In the 20th century, the situation changed – in families, a man and a woman shared housework. However, the study showed that most of the work was still done by women. Fortunately, housework today is a lifelong commitment, done by someone who can be at home.
Why National Homemaker Day is Important
- The contribution of a person who does housework is invaluable, it must be respected and thanked.
- Today, more and more families are moving away from generally accepted norms, especially when same-sex marriage became officially allowed in America in 2015.
- Today, raising children or keeping the house clean is not considered less courageous.
- National Homemaker Day encourages each of us to analyze life values, priorities, money – not the most important thing in life, much more valuable – care, love, attention.
How to celebrate
Show how much you appreciate the work of a housewife – do this work yourself, for example, wash dishes, windows, clean the house, cook lunch or dinner, clean the yard. If you do not have the opportunity to do the housework yourself, hire a person and pay for his work, be sure to thank. Organize a day of rest for the housewife, give a certificate to the spa, a trip to the resort.
