Call me a sap, but I do love Valentine’s Day. Oh sure, it gets a bit of a bad rap these days, and not for no reason–the pressure of making one day perfect, romantic, and meaningful will take the fun out of anything.
But it’s a holiday about love! And love is pretty great, don’t ya think? So instead of looking at Valentine’s Day as an obligation or a test, why not look at it as an opportunity? We get so caught up in the pressure and grind of the daily routine (and who knows this better than us New Yorkers, eh?) that we forget to tell the people we love how much they mean to us. Maybe it’s a good thing we have a holiday to remind us to tell the people we love how we feel!
So whether you’re sending a card, making a phone call, or giving out chocolate like it’s well, candy, look at this Valentine’s Day as an opportunity to show your love to the people around you, and I think you just might find a new appreciation for this holiday.
And speaking of chocolate…as a token of our affection for our customers, Market is offering 10% off all chocolate this Thursday and Friday! Buy some for your spouse, your partner, your girlfriend or boyfriend, your friends, your co-workers, your neighbors, your kids, your parents, or yourself!
On the day itself (that’s Friday) Market will be having a chocolate and wine pairing for all our Valentines in Ditmas Park. Why? Because we love you! Drop in Friday night for a bite of knock-your-socks-off-good chocolate and a wine pairing from T.B. Ackerson.
