Mother-in-Law Day

Modeled on the celebration of Mother's Day and Father's Day, Mother-in-Law Day was first celebrated on March 5, 1934, in Amarillo, Texas, where it was initiated by the editor of the local newspaper.

Mother-in-Law Day
Mother-in-Law Day
Fourth Sunday in October
Modeled on the celebration of Mother's Day and Father's Day, Mother-in-Law's Day was first celebrated on March 5, 1934, in Amarillo, Texas, where it was initiated by the editor of the local newspaper. The observance was later moved to the fourth Sunday in October.
Mothers-in-law have never enjoyed the widespread respect and devotion that mothers have received over the years, and the rising divorce rate has given the whole concept of in-laws a less permanent place in the national imagination. This may be part of the reason why Mother-in-Law Day has failed to catch on like Mother's Day, Father's Day, and even Grandparents' Day. But many people feel that mothers-in-law deserve a special day of their own, if for no other reason than for their good humor in enduring the many jokes that have been told about them.

I feel that she always try to give us her experience, and aim to see me and my wife live a pleasure life.
she can balance between give us advice without intervene in our life, I think this is wisdom.
Additionally she have a simple life and character, in very rarely situations when I find her thinking in a convoluted way.
Finally in think this woman deserve a day.
thanks for free dictionary I will call her.
