It’s almost that time of year again so I did a search on Google for the following:
People who hate Valentines Day – 93,600,000 pages
People who love Valentines Day – 988,000,000 pages
People who don’t care about Valentines Day – 166,000,000 pages
So I guess the lovers win! Good for them. Me? I mostly fall into the “don’t care” or “meh” category. By the way, 166 million pages all devoted to “I don’t care”?! Wow people, we need to get a life.
To me, Feb 14th is Tracy’s birthday, and that makes it special but it is not a special-once-a-year “love” day and I definitely do not expect or want a box of waxy chocolate in a heart shaped box or a dozen roses you have to take a second mortgage out in order to buy.
I also did a search on Google for Valentines Day gifts and got a ridiculous amount of absolute silliness like a heart shape photo pillow, an acrylic poster print, and a crystal key ring, to name a few. Yep, things we all yearn for.
Do people actually take Valentines Day seriously? Should they? To each his own, or to own his each. I say, just have fun with it!
Well, there you go. In case you were stuck for gift ideas. You’re welcome.
