Recently, I was with a group of women and they were talking excitedly about going out for Valentine’s Day. When they asked me what Josh and I were doing, and I said we weren’t doing anything special that day because we don’t really celebrate Valentine’s Day.
They all looked at me with a look that said, “Poor thing.”
The reality for us is that we don’t celebrate Valentine’s Day on Feb. 14th because 7 years ago, we began having a weekly date night, so Valentine’s day is less important to us.
As a funny way to answer the question, Josh and I came up 9 reasons we don’t celebrate it and instead celebrate it every week with a date night (some are his and some are mine).
Here you go:
Vomit. Someone is bound to throw up (ie. our daughter last night) and ruin your plans.
Action. You will get more action if you celebrate Valentine’s day every week instead of once a year. Scientifically proven fact.
Little planning. Valentine’s day takes little planning. Roses, a card someone else wrote that you signed. Plan ahead and have a great date night.
Expensive. Everything is more expensive on Valentine’s Day. Everything.
Not enough. Celebrating valentine’s day, having a date night once a month or three times a year is not enough for your marriage.
T & A. You will get more of this with a weekly date night.
Irresistible. You will be irresistible to your spouse with a weekly date night. Also, find out what scent they like and wear that.
Never let your underwear drawer go more than a year without updating, keep it interesting (that’s just free advice and has nothing to do with Valentine’s Day but we needed another letter).
Everyone else is out on Valentine’s day. Plan a weekly date night and avoid the crowd.
