This weekend two holidays that are associated with Red are being celebrated.
I will usually go out to lunch or dinner at a Chinese, Korean or other Asian restaurant on Lunar New Years Day. However, this year I will be celebrating at home with a frozen entree heated up in the microwave.
It is also Valentine’s Day this weekend and I am sure that the stores were full of red. I saw a large collection of chocolate and other Valentine’s items at the grocery store, but didn’t buy anything.
It will be a very different Valentine’s Day this year since we are only starting to recover from the worst numbers of the pandemic.
Hopefully people will be smart and have a socially distanced Valentine’s Day and help slow the spread even further.
I am also reminded of a Valentine’s Day long long ago when I brought a girlfriend gifts from a trip I had just returned from to India, Singapore and China. She liked the gifts, but was upset that I didn’t give her anything that was red, had hearts, or was Valentine’s Day related.
Oh, and this is also President’s Day weekend.
There is a lot to celebrate this weekend.
