August 29: Happy Housewives’ Holiday

I suppose it’s probably not PC anymore, but August 29 is Happy Housewives’ Holiday. A happy housewife, or homemaker, is a beauty to behold, and, perhaps, one of the strongest building blocks of society. After all, if Momma ain’t happy, ain’t nobody happy! (Okay, that’s not PC either, but I never promised to be PC.)

I can’t find much history behind this day, but it seems to be related to the feast day of St. Sabina, the patron saint of housewives. St. Sabina was the wife of a Roman senator who was martyred for her faith in the early 2nd century.

“A wife of noble character who can find?
She is worth far more than rubies.”
Proverbs 31:10
