We made an interesting observation in the family this year.... I am the only one who likes Valentine's Day! How did that happen? What about all those years that I bought little boxes of candy and cards for everyone and even cooked a special dinner for the family when is was too much trouble for Rex and I to go out? As soon as Valentine's stuff appears in the stores I get excited. What is not to like about cards and candy! Rex finally confessed one year that it all seemed a little "forced" to him. Oh well, he is a guy, until Anna said the exact thing last week! We then took a survey and I am all alone in my love for the holiday. I'll just remember THAT this year when I do my shopping!
So, to prove that there are still true romantics in the world, the picture is of what use to be a chain link fence at Seoul Tower in South Korea. It is covered by "Love Locks" and are placed there by couples with what I would like to assume is a romantic inscription since I can't read Korean. The fence was so covered, that you couldn't really see the view of Seoul after we had spent an hour walking up the side of the mountain.
The first time I saw a picture of "Love Locks" was from Daniel's trip to the Ukraine. There they cover the fence along the top of a bridge. Supposedly one couple will randomly place a lock on a fence and before you know it the fence is covered up. Young people in love.....what can you say.
And if you are worried that I will be left out on my favorite holiday, don't be. I have trained him well. :)
Valentine's Day, do you love it or tolerate it?
