Today: International Men's Day (Photo:

Women have their Day and men too! International Men’s Day (IMD) is an annual international event celebrated on 19 November.

“Objectives of International Men’s Day include a focus on men’s and boy’s health, improving gender relations, promoting gender equality and highlighting positive male role models. It is an occasion for men to celebrate their achievements and contributions, in particular their contributions to community, family, marriage and child care while highlighting the discrimination against them. International Men’s Day is celebrated in over 60 countries of the world.” [Source:]

Sure! But according to the NRC it is also a day in which men can do what they want. A beautiful day to watch football with your shoes on the couch, meat on the barbecue, a beer in your hand, a beautiful woman or man at your side.. and if you don’t have one? Enough porn content in the Netherlands!

Look at the stats in this NRC article.
