Gynaecocratia

The Greek title of this observance is a word that means female rule or government. This attempt at feminist revolt is of long tradition in northern Greece, where it is common for women to do all the household work and for most men to take life easy in cafes.

The women gather in village cafes to socialize, while the men stay at home cleaning house, tending the babies, and generally looking after household tasks. At dusk, the men join their wives in celebrations. More...

Intriguing! I wonder if any husbands incorporate household improvements they'd come up with during the year since the holiday the previous year? With their wives out partying, it would be the perfect time! Dancing

This is my only now.

In the USA this would never fly. How many men could get off work so their wives could party? In fact, how many women stay home and keep house?

A very one sided arrangement which I personally abhor.

Perhaps the holiday should be celebrated 3 or 4 times a week.
