St. Valentines Day A Yearly Event For Centuries
Valentines Day, is that a day to show your love for a partner, friend or the one you really love all year long??? Either way we tend to spend money for items we think and feel that special person would love to get from us but not necessarily need or want it's just a gift from our hearts. In many cases that person may mention in a conversation what they would love to have this Valentines Day from us. I think that's the best way to not purchase a gift that has to be returned. However it happens every year and will continue for a long time to come. It's been going for centuries already.
Gifts range from simply cards, fancy cards, clothes, shoes, live flowers or long stemmed roses and most of all Jewelry items like rings, watches, and necklaces. With the economy as it is lately money may become the first thing on the list for women, that way, they get to choose what they want exactly. My wife has always said just give me the money I know what I want and the last thing she would want are flowers in a vase she has to water. For me, she will get clothes or another suit I don't need in a color I don't like. When that happens I know she bought another dress or suit she didn't need either but tells me she really love it.
There it hangs in the closet until Easter and by that time she doesn't like it very much any more. However that's a gift from the love of her life that she purchased for Valentines Day.
