You know what I mean…not an itchy rash in the nether region…it’s Valentine’s day.
The biggest sales event of the year for the floral and greeting card industries.
Botanical bribery and mushy sentiment, anyone?
Personally – I think the real magic in any big holiday is the after-event sales, especially when candy is involved. Granted, the really good stuff goes fast (if it shows up on sale at all) and all you’re left with by 4pm on the 15th of February is the cheap Palmer’s, Hershey’s and Cadbury, but still. It’s chocolate, in heart-shaped chunks, at unbelievable ‘we gotta sell this shit’ prices.
This year, I’m 9 months sugar-free – so no more frenzied After VD chocolate shopping for me – although I might brave the crowds to get some discounted stuff for the SQO.
If that ain’t love, I don’t know what is ❤
