National Housewife’s Day is Celebrated on 3rd November!
Do you know where the term housewife come from? It is an old term that was used at the times when there was a sole earner of the entire family. That one person used to go to the office or any other place to earn for his family and his/her other partner used to stay at home. It was usually the wife who used to stay at home, and her husband was the earner. However, at times the stay-at-home person as husband and wife would earn.
This day is a celebration for the appreciation of housewives’ efforts or stays at home persons. In our society, the housewives usually do not receive the appreciation and credit they deserve. Staying at the house and doing all the household work and taking care of everyone from children to elders is a big deal. And if this act doesn’t receive applause, it hurts the people who are putting all the efforts to turn a house into a home. They try their level best to provide comfort to everyone. It includes cooking their favorite dishes, arranging their cupboard, keeping everything clean and tidy up. Imagine entering a messy house after hours of hard work in the office. It will leave a wrong impression on your mind and affect your mental health too. But can you imagine all the efforts that someone puts in keeping the house clean and the way you want it to be? Your spouse’s hard work and management are done, whether it be your husband or your wife, who needs appreciation.
Origin Of This Day:
The exact day of its celebration is unknown. Still, it is often stated that a woman who was unhappy with the lack of appreciation devised this day herself. It gained popularity and is celebrated worldwide at this point.
Celebration Of This Day:
The purpose of this day was to make the housewives and stay-at-home person feel special. This purpose could be fulfilled by various means, including pampering him/her, giving him/her a day off from this 24/7 job, and several others. The other spouse should make efforts to make his/her other half feel incredible and make them realize that they deserve all the appreciation and applause of this world.
On this day, the housewives should be given a spa treatment at home. It could include manicure, pedicure, massages, and all the things that could make them feel relaxed and free. If any children need to be taken care of at home, they could be babysat by some other person.
The housewife’s should give himself a day full of ease and relaxation and free from the usual household worries. It is their day, and they have the right to spend some alone time with themselves.
One important thing that should be made clear here is that the housewives shouldn’t be privileged only because it’s their day, but they deserve to be thanked for their efforts now and then. This will help in making the relations more muscular and firm.
