When I was growing up, and after I had just gotten married, I thought that holidays should be celebrated on the actual day of the holiday. I still think that a holiday should be ackowledged in some fashion on the actual day, but I have become more willing to celebrate when there is time, health, and inclination for a celebration. Thus, though it is not February 14th -- today is Valentine's Day for Der and me. Illness prevented us on two other scheduled days, but today we are well and the sun is shining. So, best wishes to all for a happy, romantic day.
