Housewife Day, or Retro Housewife Day, is a day to … well, to celebrate housewives! Break out the funny t-shirts!
Housewife derives, not surprisingly, from the words “house” and “wife” put together. Did you know “husband” has the same etymology? “Hus” is “house,” and “band” is from “bondi” which meant dweller, or one who is “bound” to a house. Interestingly, “hussy” was originally a shortening of “housewife” which at first meant any woman, then changed to mean an improperly behaved woman. Speaking of housewively word origins, do you remember who coined (or at least popularized) the phrase “domestic goddess?”
