There. I said it.
In the middle ages, the holiday morphed into the holiday of love and early on, that meant flowers, candy and hand written notes to express one's love.
Now-a-days, this has become such a commercialized holiday that I pretty much ignore it. I love getting flowers and chocolate, but really, it doesn't need to be on Valentine's Day when florists jack up the prices of bouquets just because they can.
A handpicked daisy from a field would be more romantic. Especially, since I live in the northeast, where finding a daisy at this time of year is impossible.
A hand written note would mean more than a card bought in the story.
Chocolate - well, there's never anything wrong with chocolate, dark chocolate specifically. :)
So what are you're thoughts on St. Valentine's Day? Fan or not-so-much?
Thanks for swinging in.
I do hope you have a happy Valentine's Day, whether you buy into the holiday or not!
Until next time,
