“TOKYO – A group of Japanese men hoping to encourage the nation’s legions of workaholic husbands to head home early and show their wives some appreciation have proclaimed Tuesday ‘Beloved Wives Day.’
The group, which calls itself the ‘Japan Doting Husbands Association,’ urged men to get home by 8 p.m. and say thanks to their wives for all they do.”
Now that is actually sweet (the bit about “Doting Husbands” is a bit sappy, though). I am one of those people who often forgets to thank those around me for what they do. Sometimes, even just a considerate nod is better than nothing.
Eerily enough, I made dinner plans around 8 tonight immediately prior to reading this article. 🙂
