Nothing special going on at our house for St. Valentine’s Day. Come on, I forgot our wedding anniversary in December and called my mother on my sister’s birthday and vice versa. Got a lot on my plate, but I am wearing red lipstick in honor of the day.When I was a child, Valentine’s Day meant preparing cards for everyone in my class and also preparing a special shoe box/mail box where Valentines could be delivered to me. Then we had a little party with juice and cupcakes and opened our cards. I wonder if that’s what the kids still do for Valentine’s Day in the US?
My kids dressed up in red and pink as was requested by their teachers. I wonder what their Valentine’s Day celebration looks like today? I guess I will find out later.
I remember my first Valentine’s Day in Poland. It was back before Valentine’s Day was really celebrated over here. I got a card from Misiu. It was sweet. Misiu got a mountain of cards from the many teen-aged girls that he taught. One girl was brave and signed the card “Damn. I wish I was your lover.” Kind of brave for 16, don’t you think?
Happy Valentine’s Day
