The "At Home" day was a social custom in Victorian times, where women of "gentle" status would receive visitors on a specific day of the week. The woman would print calling cards indicating she would be "At Home" e.g. on "Fridays in April". Those of her acquaintances who had received the card could then call on her that day.
