I’ve never been a big fan of Valentine’s Day (yes, I know, I’m not a big fan of Christmas either). If you’re single and don’t have someone to celebrate with, you’re bummin’ and spending a fortune on the 6 season Sex in the City DVD. If you’re in a relationship, but not married, Valentine’s Day is like some kind of litmus test for how your relationship is going. How meaningful is the card? How romantic is the dinner? Will he/she say the L word, or M word? And if you’re married, it’s easy to say, “Oh, we don’t need to celebrate, every day is Valentine’s Day with you,” or “I’m busy that night, howabout we do Valentine’s next week?”
So, on February 13, 1995 I created St. Wanda’s Day. Basically, it’s a day to do a little something nice for yourself so that when Valentine’s rolls around, and its not the incredibly romantic, meaningful, love-filled day that we know it can’t be, but secretly hope it will be, we don’t feel so badly, ‘cause we had a kick-ass time the day before.
So do a little something special for yourself on the 13th, or send your pal who is having the pre-Valentine’s Day blues a St. Wanda’s Day card and have fun!
