Ah Valentine's Day. You either love it or hate it. Can you guess my take on this day?

I'm all for whatever makes people happy, but I've never put a lot of stock into this day. Would I be too insensitive to say it can be an expensive day? Sure, there are other ways to show your love that may not involve taking out a loan to buy flowers, candy, a card and dinner.

Maybe you are good at creating something on your own things that would cause your Valentine to love you that much more.  I am not one of those people.

There was a time my sweetheart and I had a pact that we would not celebrate Valentine's Day. And so it went for a couple of years, but turns out, she wasn't too happy about it. She didn't mention that, but as a guy, I don't read between the lines too well. Lesson learned.

And then there are those who dislike like Valentine's Day, stating that love should be expressed 365 days a year, well, 366 days in 2020, not just on one day. Point taken.

However you celebrate this day, or not, I hope that you and your sweetheart have a great day. I'll be celebrating on Saturday when hopefully the restaurants won't be so busy. I know, good luck with that.
