Valentine's Day – Bah! Humbug!

February 13th, 2008 — 8:50pm

I really dislike Valentine’s day. The commercialism of this holiday makes my skin crawl. If love is to be found in red valentine’s, cupids, flowers and perfume, I pass.

No, my husband Scott and I do not celebrate Valentine’s Day.  We do not give each other pre-fabbed gifts, or treacle laden cards. Instead, tomorrow, we’ll do as we’ve done for many years — we’ll share a glass of wine while discussing our mutual dislike of this holiday. Which is why, after nearly 20 years, I’m still in this relationship. We do our best to keep what we have real, and in doing so, my hope is, that in another 20 years, we’ll still be together, once again, not celebrating Valentine’s Day.
