but I’ll save my money and celebrate it my way!
Tomorrow is Valentine’s Day and I’ve done nothing for my DH. That’s right, absolutely zilch. I’ve never really understood the hoopla around so many of these holidays. Do we really need a reminder from Hallmark to express our love? Shouldn’t we already be doing this for the special people in our lives?Call me unromantic, but I honestly don’t feel the need to rush out and spend money that we really can’t afford just to let my DH know how much I love him….all because Hallmark is telling me I need to do so! I already tell him this every day. If he doesn’t know by now how I feel about him, we have some serious relationship issues!
Despite how I feel about these “Hallmark Holidays” I will still acknowledge the day wish my DH a Happy Valentine’s Day, but I’ll also continue to do it my way all year long. I much prefer to give random surprise personal notes throughout the year. They don’t cost me a thing and I like to think that they are a lot more meaningful than some card from Hallmark! My frugal self will even take it step further and look for the Almond Joy candy he so much enjoys…but he also knows me well enough that I’ll wait until it goes on clearance the day after!
Do you do anything special on these Hallmark Holidays?
