Re: Do You Celebrate Valentine's Day?


Hell yeah. But itís a family thing with my wife and daughters now, rather than a romantic thing with my wife.

Re: Do You Celebrate Valentine's Day?


Call me a traditionalist if you will, but my wife and I celebrate it as a romantic holiday.

I hate that it has become this watered down celebration of universal "love" of all others, especially in the kids' school. Female teachers, I think, started this silly notion for some incomprehensible reason. I guess so that it will be inclusive of all.

Sort of. I spend the day doing flower deliveries, then usually out to eat.

Chocolate starts in earnest the day after.

Prolly handed out my first V Day card when I was 6 - so what's that - over 60 years ago?

I can skip a few now. I'm not even gonna ask permission.

Re: Do You Celebrate Valentine's Day?


I was with my wife in the store , she handed me a valentine card and asked me if I liked it.

I said it was ok .

She put it back on the shelf and said , “ good , now I don’t have to get you one”

“That was nice “, I said, “go ahead and pick one out for yourself “

Can't recall, but knowing me, I probably took "The Pledge" right around that time. Which of course, I would have promptly broke.

Re: Do You Celebrate Valentine's Day?


If you’re married or dating it’s pretty much mandatory, If you were single or divorced it’s probably because you forgot once too many times.

Come on cricket you know that’s a trick question!

Me? Heck, I have no clue how to stay married so I am the wrong one to ask but I would have been happy with crispy bacon.

Nah. When the kids were around we did a small something. Now it's just a holiday to make corporations richer.

Might get her a card, we don't go out because that's just crazy talk.
