Val’s Day ( by Carley Evans )

Scan of a Valentine greeting card dated 1909.

Valentine’s Day approaches. In Japan, per my daughter who lived there for a total of four years, Valentine’s Day is for the woman to give gifts to her man. Later in the year — as I recall, it’s a day in March — the man returns the favor on White Day, a day for the man to give gifts to his woman.

Romance twice in the same year? What an idea!

Odd to me how men and women court one another so well during the initial months of a relationship — little notes, cards, flowers, candlelight dinners, wine, chocolates — then fail to maintain this air of romance through the subsequent years.

Do yourself a favor! Give your spouse or your intended something special on Valentine’s Day. Take his or her hands, look deep in the eyes, and say softly “I love you.” Your tone of voice, the softness of your touch, and your eyes will tell the truth.

Blessings!
