(WKOW) -- The website National Calender Day.com says Wife Appreciation Day is observed annually on the third Sunday in September.
While the history of Wife Appreciation Day is somewhat obscure, it seems the idea originally was created to honor the women who, while they are married, do not have children.
Wife Appreciation Day is a way to make up for Mother’s Day since they do not qualify for that holiday.
Some popular ways to observe Wife Appreciation Day are with a gift of flowers, perfume, jewelry or clothing. A day at a spa, tickets to a show and dinner at a nice restaurant are also nice ways to show appreciation. A foot massage and cooking breakfast or dinner at home can also be a very nice way to say, “Thank you for all the things you do every day. I appreciate them.”
