NATIONAL HOUSEWIFEâ€™S DAY
Each year on November 3, millions of people across the country
celebrate National Housewifeâ€™s Day. This day was created to make the
day a special one for the â€śstay at homeâ€ť mom, as their job taking care
of the children and the home is a 24/7 one, that sometimes does not get
the â€śthank youâ€ť that is much deserved.
The term â€śhousewifeâ€ť is an old term stemming from the days when
most families were supported from one income. The father worked and the
mother stayed home to take care of the house and the children. Times
have changed and it is not always possible for one parent to stay at
home, even though it is still preferred by many. In todayâ€™s society,
typically two incomes are needed to support a household. If a mother
is able to stay at home, the term â€śstay at home momâ€ť or â€śdomestic
engineerâ€ť are favored over the term â€śhousewifeâ€ť.
Today, honor the â€śhousewifeâ€ť in your family or a â€śhousewifeâ€ť that you know.
