I know the 14th February is long gone but you can actually still celebrate all the others St. Valentines. July will be full of them. 6th, 25th and 30th July are all dedicated to St. Valentines as is 3rd November and 7th January. Valentine was a popular name back in the day.
I think it would be nice to have a special day not on 14th February, no? Don’t get me wrong, flowers, champagne, chocolates and great food make me happy but I cringe at the social obligation we are force into coming up to the date in the middle of the second month.
We should be celebrating love and tell people we love them. And not because the calendar say it is time to do so.
V in the A to Z challenge.

Valentine’s day has become such a commercial event, thanks for offering some alternative dates here. Everyone loves to be surprised!
