National Housewife Day

National Housewife Day is celebrated in the United States on October 3 every year. The day is dedicated to women who maintain cleanliness in the house, raise children, create an aura of coziness and comfort. Often the work goes unrecognized – this is not fair, because they work 7 days a week!


It is not known who founded the National Day, another thing is clear – the creator understood exactly that the work of housewives is important and should be noticed. Stories are popular when a husband comes home from work and blames his wife for not working. Moreover, at this time he has a hot dinner on the table, clean ironed shirts in the dressing room, and all this is in a clean house.

Housewives have been around for a long time. At different times they had a huge number of tasks – it is impossible to enumerate. In the 19th century, in developed countries, women tried to go to paid work, families above average income allowed themselves to stay at home. In the 20th century, many couples made such a decision that the woman paid enough attention to the children.

The purpose of the holiday is to give mom and wife a break! Most modern people understand that housework is the most important component. This led to the fact that men learned to share some tasks, which was not practiced before.
