I’m sure no one’s ever thought to ask the romance writing, reading, and snarking community this question, but what about Valentine’s Day? What’s your take on it? Hokey holiday? Forced admissions of love, declarations of ardor, demands for sex, and welcome gifts of chocolate and giant fuzzy heart pillows that say “Amor?” Or a genuine opportunity to express your love and admiration for those nice folks in your life?
Personally, Hubby and I never managed to get together on 2/14 the entire time we had a long-distance relationship, which constituted the first three years we were together. But somehow we made it by the 15th, so that’s when we celebrate our “Valentine’s Day.”
Also, on the 15th? All that candy I don’t want to be eating? Is on sale! Whoo!
So what does the romance world think of the forced treacly romantic expectations of Valentine’s Day?
And don’t forget, March 14 is S&BJ day! Wonder if anyone’s written an S&BJ-themed romance….
