It’s that day again! The day the flower sellers/card makers came up with so they could have Valentines Day twice a year! Which isn’t necessarily a bad thing as it helps to keep them in business and gives the men a reminder that they should do a little something to make their wives happy even if that involves killing flowers and buying candy.
I managed to bat 300 this year with the traditional flowers/candy combo with a nice set of deep red roses and some extra special dark chocolate candies and the perfect card. Despite being very sentimental I’m not a very good romantic, but I am slowly learning why such gestures are so important and I definitely understand the benefit they bring me. It’s the sort of thing I try to remember to do every so often on days that aren’t designated by the flower/candy/card industries, but I’ve not quite mastered that yet so despite the obvious commercialism of the day it’s good for me to have that kind of a reminder.
Here’s hoping you managed to do as well with your significant others, assuming you have one in the first place.
