All these “mandatory” holidays can be a bit guilt inducing as well as increase the feeling of loneliness. Not to mention, the ridiculous commercial aspect behind it.
To avoid these feeling, me and my other half treat these days as any other day. And it does not take away the pressure.
Yet, I am happy they exist, because they do give me creative inspiration!
So, now that that the December festivities are done with, we are moving towards Valentine’s Day!

Thanks for the warning. Now that I’m back in the US, I’m sure hearts will be all I see when I walk into the store.
