Celebrate Valentine’s Day a Day Early
Remember how I’ve said that surprise is an important element of romance? Well, everyone knows that tomorrow is Valentine’s Day. I guarantee you that your wife is expecting you to do something for her tomorrow, whether it is buy her flowers (which will cost twice as much as normal) or chocolates, or maybe to take her out to dinner. All that is fine, as far as it goes, pretty much everyone is going to do something romantic tomorrow.
Okay, so why not be different? Surprise her today by taking her out to eat. Buy her a present and give it to her today. Whatever it is that you would do tomorrow, do it a day early. Make today your own personal Valentine’s Day.
Besides, the restaurants won’t be as crowded today as they will be tomorrow. Everyone will be going out tomorrow, so most couples won’t bother going out today, even if they have a habit of going out on Sundays. I don’t know if the flower prices have already gone up for Valentine’s Day, but I’d say there’s a better chance of getting them at the normal price today, than there will be tomorrow. Have fun, as I said, make it your own personal day.
Oh, and by the way, just because you celebrate Valentine’s Day today, doesn’t mean you can’t do it again tomorrow. In fact, because you did it today, your wife probably won’t be expecting you to do anything tomorrow. So, you can make tomorrow a surprise for her as well. How’s that, two days of surprise for one holiday? Can’t get a bargain like that very often.
