We tend to do this a lot. It seems easier than going along with the mob on specific days.
We also don't buy cards. We just go to stores and show each other cards. We say "aww" and then put them back. Take that, Hallmark!
We did accidentally go out to eat one Valentine's Day. That was a mistake. And we also once decided to go to the Zoo and it turned out to be Earth Day. We won't do that again.
So join us. Celebrate one day before a holiday and don't worry about restaurants being closed, the roads being jammed or events being filled with mindless calendar-centric toadies!
