Valentine’s Day. It’s certainly a love or hate holiday — there’s no going in between. Is there anything worse than not having a Valentine on February 14? Yep, actually a whole lot of things. In fact, if you’re reading this on a computer screen, count yourself lucky and go ahead and gobble down some of those terrible tasting candy hearts. If this was a real holiday, we’d at least get the day off from work. The only people that truly love Valentine’s Day are CEO’s of flower, chocolate and greeting card companies, and obviously those who love all things pink/red/sparkly. So we say, congratulations flower and greeting card companies! You did it. You’re fresh out of roses and lilies and can go to sleep tonight knowing your high season is over. And to the glitter lovers, the amount of glitter does not correspond to the amount of love you’ll give, or receive.
All that aside, shouldn’t every day be a celebration of a couples love and affection for each other? It’s like when you asked your parents growing up why there wasn’t a “kids” day? I mean, you reasoned, there is mother’s and father’s days! “Because everyday is kids day!” They’d shout, and you’d give a weak argument why that isn’t true and gradually change the subject knowing they were absolutely right. Anyway…
