My husband and I have a boycott on Valentine's Day. I know that's sort of bah-humbug of us, but let me list our reasons:
- We have a sincere aversion to all things pink. (Sorry Sarah!)
- Once you get past the undeniable sweetness of Valentine's Day in elementary school, what is the day about? Consumerism, and high expectations. How many of us have gotten into fights/been really disappointed with our sweeties on this day?
- How many of us have sat at home in our single days and stuffed our faces and cried?
- Patrick's and my anniversary is February 18th. Why celebrate hokey, contrived Valentine's Day, when our own anniversary is only four days away? Stay tuned for a sweet, lovey post on Wednesday.
And for all you who do celebrate Valentine's, have a great one! I hope there is chocolate involved.
