We never really celebrated a Valentine’s Day in our 7-years of marriage or 10-years of love. Except, maybe for the first Valentine’s Day. It wasn’t exactly a celebration per se. The flowers were there, I was there, the questions were looming in since that was our first Valentine’s Day – I guess he didn’t have any choice left; not when friends are there to cheer to present the girl with a red rose, other than to pick up the flower, pay for it and hand it to me.
Last year, my husband bought me first ever Valentine’s Day greeting card. It read, “To my dearest mommy”. Yes, that card was given to me by my husband on behalf of my son.
I have never surprised my husband with presents or greeting cards for Valentine’s Day either. We have never dined out because it was Valentine’s Day. And so, all these talks about ‘the month of love’ – I don’t really get that. If I were to choose a month of love, it would be November – the month he proposed and December – the month we got married. But then if he gifts me with chocolate this month, who am I to say no to that!
Do you celebrate Valentine’s day? Is love really in the air other than schools and colleges, this month?
