Made dinner Friday night and breakfast Saturday morning for my best friend and myself. We took in the movie "Bottle Shock" for free at a local library and kind of spontaneously went out to dinner Saturday evening. Actually this is all pretty normal behavior for us. We don't really celebrate Valentine's Day; we celebrate the 15th instead. THAT's the day, thirty-five years ago, when we fell in love forever.

Money being tight, my Wife and I didn't do anything too special.
I did download some vintage valentine cards and printed them on nice cardstock.
She really liked that.

Nothing. We don't celebrate that "holiday."

Perhaps I should clarify. See, before we got married, my wife and I both decided that we didn't like V-Day and that we wouldn't celebrate it. So imagine my surprise when she seemed a little disappointed when, nearly a year into our marriage when our first V-Day as husband and wife came around, I reminded her what we had decided. She was a bit unhappy with me for that one.

So to save my buttocks from spending a month in the dog house, I suggested an alternate holiday that actually meant something to us: The day we got engaged. Which just so happens to be a few days after V-Day (Feb 17th, so today is our two-year engagement anniversary).

Once again, after seeing her co-workers get flowers on V-Day she was a little unhappy that I didn't do anything for her this year on V-Day. But maybe I should be upset because she completely forgot today was our engagement anniversary! :mad:

Oh well. Maybe next year it will work out the way we agreed it should.

Women! :tellme: ;) :D

If you were to try celebrating the day using a Chinese calendaring system, you could have the day be different pretty much every year:

Then you can both forget ;)
