I do one weird thing. I love to look at the websites that have lists of the kooky holidays nobody knows about. And It’s the first of November, so I thought hey, I’ll look at November’s kooky holidays, right? So I did. And this is what I found.

November is International Drum Month, Peanut Butter Lovers Month, and National Sleep Comfort Month.


Today, November 3rd, 2011…

Is Housewife Day. discribes it like this-

“Housewife Day recognizes the importance of stay at home wives and
moms. Also referred to as “Retro” Housewife Day. These wonderful, caring
creatures, build and enrich strong family environments. They help to instill
family values and good character.”

“Housewife is an old term. It hails back to the days when one income could
support the family in a manner of comfort. It was also a time when women did not
have equal rights. While these days are long gone, women views of working or
staying at home, fall on both sides of the fence. The decision to be a
“housewife”, or stay at home mom, is still preferred by many. Unfortunately,
income needs often necessitate going to work.”

“Today, we celebrate and thank all of the ladies who choose to stay home and
tend to the house and family!”


It gets even better.

On this very day, November 3rd, 2011… aside from being Housewife Day… It is also

Sandwich Day.


I am not kidding you.

You would think this to be the time I’d take a moment and a few lines of screen to delve into sexism and Women’s earned place in society and the wrongness of “kitchen jokes”…

But if I’m being honest… When I read that, I laughed so hard I almost peed a little.
