No Housework Day

No Housework Day is your chance to do anything, except housework. Better still, have someone else do the chores for a day. Housework is a daily, seemingly endless and repetitive group of tasks that just seem to become undone as soon as you turn away. It often goes unrecognized, and worst of all… taken for granted. But, watch out! If the dishes aren’t done, or there are no clean towels, somebody notices.

There are two ways to celebrate this day.

If you normally do the housework around the house, cease and desist for this day. Instead, kick back and enjoy the day. Relax and do anything, except housework. The chores will still be there tomorrow, instead take this time to read that book you have been meaning to get to. Take the family to the park, enjoy the weather. Do anything except housework.

Our research did not uncover a particular person who started this day, or when it was first celebrated.

We’re pretty sure it originated by someone who was a wee bit tired of doing the daily chores, and jjust needed a day off. Most likely, they threw up their hands and said something like, “That’s it! I’m taking a day off from all of this work.”

Whoever the genius was who first created this day, we salute you!
