Valentine’s Day is set aside as THE DAY to express love and romance. I know it wasn’t created by Hallmark, but I do wonder if a CEO, a long time ago made a great business deal so that we have a special occasion almost every month. Doesn’t it seem that way ?
Let’s look at the calendar:
Jan – ok, we don’t really send cards for New Years or MLKings birthday
Feb- A few Presidents birthdays and VALENTINE’S DAY
March- St. Patricks Day, Spring begins,
April- Easter and related
May – MOTHER’s DAY
June – FATHER’S DAY
July – Independence Day
August- Women’s Equality Day- Bet you missed that one.
Sept. – GRANDPARENTS DAY
Oct. – Columbus Day and Halloween
Nov. – THANKSGIVING DAY
Dec. – CHRISTMAS DAY
I might have missed a few and OK, it’s not monthly but add in all the birthdays, anniversaries, weddings, graduations, sympathy, engagement, get well, newborns, moving, retirement, etc. and we have many opportunities to express ourselves through cards.
What seems to me to make Valentine’s Day different is the universal call to find romantic ways to say ‘I LOVE YOU’. We have our preferences; flowers, chocolate, romantic dinner out, treat to a movie, theater or club, candles, jewelry, money to buy what we want, and so on. We might even see declarations on Facebook posts, tweets and messages through social media.
But what happens when a romantic gesture doesn’t happen?
We do live busy lives, tight budgets or are not in a relationship and sometimes romance gets pushed aside. Maybe we want to look at how we can indulge ourselves, since V day is all about love. How can you show yourself you love yourself (in addition to loving others) . To me it makes very good sense. Remember that beautiful post, F.L.Y?
What better way to extend the loving feeling than to treat yoursef to something new. These are some new transitional pieces to kick the winter blues. Visit our website for additional designs: http://www.EarthandMoonDesign.com. Enjoy and Have a Great and Loving Day!
