I find it a bit odd that people (and by that I mean the media) seem to be using the term “valentine ‘s week”.
men people I’ve spoken to seem to ignore this occasion entirely, describing it as “American” and “consumer”, another excuse to have to spend money.
I don’t agree with that assessment, after all you don’t have to spend a penny to express your feelings for someone and it doesn’t have to be dodgy plush toys and heart galore.
This year I’m taking part in the Tumblr Armitage Army Valentine’s Gift Exchange (can’t wait for the postman to come with something other than a bill or stuff I bought on ebay…) and Guylty’s RAworld Secret Valentine.
I’ve already finished my post/gift for the lucky/unlucky (depending on how you look at it) recipient and I’ve promised myself that I’ll send it to Guylty long before the deadline.
That’s my Valentine gift to her 😉
Anyway, nothing says the season of love, be it a day or a week, than some beyond creepy vintage Valentine’s Day cards:
Have I creeped you out enough?
Have a good errr…. Valentine’s Week…
