Maybe it's because I'm new here....

We just moved up here to the great white North (haha! It was 73 degrees today, the only thing white was my socks!) in June. So, I guess I'm not up on all of the local traditions, etc. But somebody please tell me...

What the HECK is "Sweetest Day??"

Sounds an awful lot like a "holiday" made up by the florists and greeting card industry to guilt money out of the men of the world. Don't get me wrong, I'm all for presents and flowers from my sweetheart, but this is just awfully contrived.

So, honey, save your money for Christmas. I have assembled quite a sizable list for you to choose from and I'd hate to cut into any real holiday spending with this useless "holiday."

Cynical? Why yes...a bit!
