According to NationalDayCalendar.com, September 20 is:
Wife Appreciation Day – Third Sunday in September
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.” Use #WifeAppreciationDay to post on social media.
Though it’s funny to imagine that National Punch Day could correlate with wives who don’t feel appreciated enough (and want to punch their hubbies instead) – given that it’s wife appreciation day, the truth is that National Punch Day isn’t really about that kind of punch. It’s more about the kind you drink.
