According to the Cute Calendar website, No Housework Day originated in 1987 and it is to be observed worldwide by "people who don't like housework." I cannot believe
this is the first I've heard of it!
While thinking about this holiday observance, I began to wonder when was the last day I did absolutely no housework. I'm not really sure.
Even on vacation, I have probably straightened up the hotel bed or picked up someone's laundry off the floor or wiped toothpaste out of the sink. On rare days when I've been in bed with the flu, I've probably wandered out to the kitchen with the glass from my ginger ale and put it in the dishwasher.
Doing absolutely no housework might actually be harder than one thinks ... but it does sounds like a fun challenge.
Unfortunately, I won't be observing this holiday this year. My plan for today involves not only some minor housework but a little spring cleaning. The dishwasher has been unloaded, the breakfast dishes are done, and the oven has already been wiped out and is set to the "self-clean" mode.
You can be sure, however, that I am already marking this event on next year's calendar.
How about you?
