Tell me you didn’t forget.
Valentine’s Day falls on Feb. 14 this year, which is to say, today.
If you did forget, you better hope you’re reading early enough to can get to a florist before she wakes up. You should probably unhook the garage door and raise it by hand. That thing would wake the dead, which, if you recall, is where Valentine’s Day comes from – dead Romans, and the ancient Roman holiday of Lupercalia, the annual February fertility fest where the girl-Romans at the party put their names in a bowl and the boy-Romans drew the names.
Flash forward a few millennia, and the little pieces of parchment turned into cards, followed by jewelers, candy makers and of course Hallmark Cards, whipping everyone into a frenzy and badabing, Valentine’s Day, which is one of the most widely celebrated holidays in the world.
