International Childfree Day: A day worth celebrating? Why or why not?


Moms, dads, grandparents, teachers, secretaries...everybody gets their "day" of recognition on the modern calendar. As such, August 1st is International Childfree Day, a day to recognize all individuals who have made the conscious decision not to have children. Yet I have heard some people--typically parents--who object to the idea of a "Childfree Day", even calling it "unthinkable" or inappropriate. Why would that be the case? Why would you say the childfree don't deserve their own day of recognition? Contrarily, why do you feel honoring the childfree is an important thing to do?

    It's weird how people resist it when you call something other than mommy and daddy plus children a family.
