National Men Make Dinner Day?

National Men Make Dinner Day is observed annually on the first Thursday in November. This holiday must have been created by a woman, Sandy Sharkey, who was so sick of cooking she decided to set a day aside to encourage the man in her life to cook for her. And barbecuing doesn’t count on this holiday – unless of course the man goes to the store, prepares the meat and cooks it too! This is the day for men to take charge in the kitchen and cook for their loved ones.
