Today on “Days to Remember” we celebrate Housewife Day, which is sometimes referred to as Retro Housewife Day.
If you believe that you are not as appreciated as you should be for your efforts, Retro Housewife’s Day will help you fight the feeling that your efforts are going largely unnoticed, and just maybe this is the perfect holiday to speak your mind about things, but how did this obscure holiday manage to dust its way into your lives?
Although the exact date that Retro Housewife Day was created is difficult to source (as are many such events), many suspect that it was created by an actual housewife; perhaps feeling a bit jaded or not fully appreciated. Unsurprisingly, the idea soon gained a great deal of momentum, considering the vast amount of women who have been housewives over the centuries and millennia.
Here are some famous domesticated divas you might have heard of.
It wasn’t all that long ago when most gals were stay-at-home women. While the men went to the office every day, it was the woman’s “job” to take care of the home and the children. Lucy Ricardo, Betty Crocker and June Cleaver made it look so easy!
At one time Lucy Ricardo decided to get job outside of the house, and realize it was harder to find a job. If your remember the famous episode of Lucy and Ethel working at the chocolate factory, is today YouTube clip presented by user name History 104WWU, as we celebrate Retro Housewife Day on November 3rd.
So how should we celebrate Retro House Wife Day?
If you are a stay-at-home wife or husband, feel free to treat yourself to a day spa. You deserve it, for all of the floors you’ve washed, all of the diapers you’ve changed, and all of the dinners you’ve cooked! Go on, don’t feel guilty, everyone needs a break every now and then, and don’t ever let anyone tell you otherwise!
Find someone trustworthy to watch your children of you have any, and take the day off to enjoy yourself getting a massage, reading book, or just sipping some coffee or wine without having to worry about all of the things that need to be done and whether you’ll have time to do them before your spouse gets home. This day is about you, so make sure you relax fully and recharge your batteries so you can be fresh and ready to start again the next day.
