Be Mine, Valentine

What kind of Valentine's Day Reacter are you?

Do you like to wear red and pink? Or send funny valentines to people? Does your special somebody or other do something nice like bring you flowers? Do you go out with your girlfriends and get margaritas and just laugh and have a great time? Do you at least use it as an excuse to eat candy? I really hope so. Valentine's day has never been a holiday I really get into, but people who vehemently protest it just kind of bug me! Why not take a day, in the middle of the dreary winter, to just spread the love?

Everyone get's into the Christmas spirit by doing nice things for people, but nobody really thinks of V-day that way. That's why this year I am going to spend my Valentine's day smiling at strangers who look like their having a really terrible day, or holding the door for people, or letting a car or two pull out in front of me when I'm waiting to get out of the parking garage after work. I realize that it's a small step toward spreading the love, but that's why if those things aren't enough, I will still make sure to bring some candy.
