In my part of the world, this commercialized “holiday” is over for most people. To be honest, I was overwhelmed by the degree of enthusiasm I observed tonight. People in this city really do take Valentine’s Day seriously!
I don’t know if you do celebrate this “Hallmark holiday”, but here is something I discovered over the weekend. I got the best Valentine’s gift ever – a web site about everyone’s favorite food: BACON! Dubbed Republic of Bacon ((Source: Republic of Bacon)), this site is all that bacon lovers need, really. I have to warn you though – do not visit if you will have problems getting your hand on some bacon. The moment I laid my eyes on the site, I had to get a plateful of crispy bacon goodness!
So what makes this site worth visiting aside from the fact that it is all about bacon? There is this post which is somehow about going against the flow of the practices of this saccharine holiday. Don’t get me wrong – I am totally for spending special time together with your partner and showing your appreciation for each other. I just hate it when you have to go from one restaurant to another when you’re dying for oysters simply because everyone and their mom has decided to celebrate Valentine’s Day (or evening for that matter).
These cards will make anyone smile – Valentine’s Day or not. This first card does not need any explanation at all, does it? Try telling your partner that he/she is > BACON and you’ll definitely see how much you will be appreciated!
Bacon does make everything better. Nothing can be truer.
And here’s the best Valentine’s gift you can give anyone – some bacon, what else?
Now I know for a fact that bacon will put me in a good mood anytime – especially after I keep failing at a level in Angry Birds. What better way to get revenge on those freaking pigs than to eat some bacon and relish every single bite?
In any case, if anyone is still looking for a way to do something special on this holiday, these cards might give you some inspiration. ;)
