About Spouse's Day
When is Spouse's Day? This holiday is always observed on January 26
Spouse’s Day is a time to enjoy and appreciate your better half. On this January 26 holiday, show your spouse the love! You can use this day as a prelude or warm-up to Valentine’s Day if you’d like. But, note it is not really a gift-giving event. Rather, use it as a time to show your spouse that you care and appreciate all of the things that he/she does for you and the household. In other words, take a minute to be thankful for what you’ve got.
You’re in it for life. Over the long years of a relationship, it’s easy to take for granted the many things your spouse does. He/she is always there. They do so many big and little things as routine activities and events. Take today to notice those things, and to say thanks. As for the “enjoyment” part of the day…we will leave that up to you to enjoy your spouse however the two of you desire.
If you are raising children, it’s hard to find time for each other. However, try to save just a little time and energy for your partner. After the kids go to bed, at least spend some time cuddling with your cutie

“The best way to cheer yourself, is to try to cheer someone else up.” – – Mark Twain
History and Origin of Spouse's Day
We have yet to discover who created Spouse’s Day. This holiday originated around 2010 – 2015.
There are some recent references to this as a “National” day. None of the oldest records had the word “national” in the title. We suspect someone arbitrarily added the word “National” around 2107 – 2018. We also did not find any congressional records or presidential proclamations for this day.
