Three Ways How To Have A Fun Unique Mother-In-Law Day In Amarillo
I've written extensively about National Mother-In-Law Day in the past. It's a weird, oddball holiday that got its start right here in Yellow City. What began as a fun back-and-forth between some poor guy and his mother-in-law turned into a national spectacle.
Yes, your mother-in-law gets her own unique holiday, and you can thank Amarillo for it.
Do People Really Celebrate National Mother-In-Law Day?
You do now that she's read this. Congrats.
It all started because a guy published something that offended his mother-in-law, and mothers-in-law all over town. To apologize he put together a giant spectacle.
News spread like wildfire, and even reached the White House prompting a visit from the then First Lady.
You can't get rid of something once the First Lady gets involved. Whether it's just saying no or children's nutrition; what the Lady of the house says, sticks.
Ways You Can Celebrate National Mother-In-Law Day
First, don't pretend like some flowers are going to do the trick. You know your mother-in-law. You'll need to do better than that.
She probably already has her own garden full. So, I put together a few quick ideas that might interest you and her.
Feed Your Mother-In-Law...With Love
Might I recommend a hearty meal. Get your mother-in-law good and fed.
If you're lucky She might even be fortunate enough to eat her way into a nap; if you do it right. Lord knows you she could use the rest.
Help Empower Your Mother-In-Law With Knowledge
Enroll her in a course on technology. Namely, social media. This way she will be empowered and capable of keeping up with what's happening at your house without calling or texting you
non-freaking-stop out of love and concern.
Book A Trip For Your Mother-In-Law
Preferably somewhere exotic and very, very far away. She deserves a bit of adventure, and sending her three hours away won't do the trick.
Beaches are nice this time of year.
Sure it's expensive, but can you really put a price on
all that peace and quiet you'll get giving your beautiful mother-in-law time to relax and recharge. Plus, think of all the photos she'll want to share with you when she gets back.
Happy National Mother-In-Law Day
Seriously though, thank you mothers-in-law. Your constant attention to details, unannounced visits, late night phone calls, and casseroles keep the world moving and all of us on our toes.
Happy National Mother-In-Law Day.
