Sorry Hallmark

Today is Valentine's day and my wife and I decided to spend the day with our two dogs. A really nice dinner- steak and lobster tails- is on the menu. But it will be cooked on our stove in our comfortable home.
It seems these days there are holidays for almost every special interest group: Admin day at work, boss day, bring your dog to work day, grandparents' day- the list goes on and on. Do we really need all of these holidays? Do we really need Hallmark and other greeting card companies reminding us who is special in our lives?
If our lives have gotten to the point that we only treat our wives special on Feb 14th, or thank our hard working admins on one day maybe we should skip the greeting card isle and fix our priorities.
A great goal for 2010 would be to make our wives feel so special every day of the year that Feb 14th is just another day. Of course, if folks stopped purchasing Valentine's day cards, Hallmark would come up with another holiday.
How about, "National drink beer at work day". I'll buy a 12 oz of that card!!!!
