Valentines Day is fast approaching with only four months away, this is a great time to start preparing. People ask me is it not too soon to start planning now? I always say if you want the best crop you have to plant at the correct time. You can’t plant today and expect o harvest tomorrow and still think you will produce a good harvest. That is the main reason to start early, Valentines Day gifts for her will also be enjoyed by you. Are they not for you?
Are her gifts, not yours?
In my previous posts, I said, take yourself out of the equation you are buying a gift for your loved one not for yourself. The principle stands but with some room for play. At the end of the Day, it’s ” V” day, and half of the day belongs to you too!
You know your Lover!
By now, you should know your Wife, Fiance, Girlfriend unless you just met yesterday or you still going to meet her say on “D” day. The day before Valentine. Well, let just deal with that be for we continue. If you have not taken time to learn from your new partner it is safe to plan for a dinner at her choice of restaurant. Well if you met a week before the day a surprise picnic can work. Love is new and exciting, anything crazy is allowed.
For veterans in this field, you know you have to bring you a game unless you are not reading this great post and you forget, then you can op for the above-mentioned options. That is if you survive realizing you forgot and have no plans. Before we get on the Daunting task of getting a Gift for her, let ask.
Why do we celebrate Valentine’s day?
The tradition dates back to the third century, two men name Valentine were executed on the 14th of Feb of a different year by Roman Emperor. Their death was celebrated by the Church as St Valentine’s day. Centuries later, the day was celebrated alongside a pagan feast. The day was later confused as a day of “Lovers of Women”. The tradition of giving handwritten notes began. Many centuries later Hallmark heard of this and built a Billion Dolla company. Well, the short end of it is that we now celebrate the death of executed Valentines, a pagan feast and day for the lover of a woman?
That’s a bit confusing when we look at it. Maybe that is why many chose not to Celebrate. We don’t want to spend money! This is propaganda! it is a pagan feast! Go fly a kite.
The Joy of Valentines Day
We have chosen to celebrate because we found a new meaning that is relevant to us and we love loving and love to be

- Chocolate works well with flowers.

- Dinner or a picnic is awesome ideas. I would check the weather report to have alternate plans. There is nothing like cuddling after running in a cool rain in February. Which leads to the day no being decided by the weather.
