Book reading is a great hobby. It’s an important one, too. Employers look
for it on resumes. Reading is educational, informative, and relaxing. It
makes us both smarter, and happier people.
Book Lovers Day is a great day to celebrate. Just grab an interesting book,
find a quiet, cozy place, and crack open the cover. Celebrating Book Lovers

part of the relaxing benefits of being a book lover.

There is some disagreement over when this day is celebrated. The vast
majority of sites list it on August 9th. A smaller number of sites have it
recorded on the first Saturday in November. If you are a true book lover,
you will enjoy celebrating it on both days.
Localized organizations and groups have declared “Book Lover” days on
various other dates.
House Wife Day
Date When Celebrated : Always November 3.
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!
How will I celebrate this special day?
I will celebrate this day, by honoring my beloved wife, and thanking her for
staying home for the family during the child rearing years. Without a doubt,
our children grew up much better for it. And, I benefited by the many
sacrifices she made by staying home.
Date When Held : Always November 3
We invite you to bite into your favorite sandwich, for today is Sandwich
Day. The sandwich is truly a great creation. Sandwiches are a daily luncheon
staple for millions of Americans.
The Creation of the Sandwich:
The annals of English history report that John Montagu was the 4th Earl of
Sandwich. Among other things, the 4th Earl of Sandwich was a heavy gambler.
Montagu often spent many long hours in London’s gambling parlors. In 1762,
he created the sandwich, by putting meat between two pieces of bread. This
allowed him to remain at the gambling table for long periods of time.
Obviously, the sandwich was named after him
Celebrate this special day by eating sandwiches at every meal! Consume your
favorite sandwich. Better yet, be bold and daring….. try a new sandwich!

Happy Sandwich Day!!!
Origin of Sandwich Day:
We know a lot about the sandwich how it was created and who it was named
for. We did not find any information on who created Sandwich Day, or when
this special day was first celebrated.
We are certainly grateful for the sandwich, and agree it deserves this
special day of recognition!
