National Housewife’s Day November 3. Photo credit:


Each year on November 3, millions of people across the country celebrate National Housewife’s Day.  This day was created to make the day a special one for the “stay at home” mom, as their job taking care of the children and the home is a 24/7 one, that sometimes does not get the “thank you” that is much deserved.

The term “housewife” 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 today’s society, typically two incomes are needed to support a household.   If a mother is able to stay at home, the term “stay at home mom” or “domestic engineer” are favored over the term “housewife”.

Honor the “housewife” in your family or a “housewife” that you know.


Our research was unable to find the creator and the origin of National Housewife’s Day, and “unofficial” national holiday.
