Happy Valentine!

I always thought that only in Lebanon people celebrate Valentine, and they take the opportunity of this holiday to make extra money (or spend it, depends on which side you are). But it turned out it’s also the case here in France.

In here also couples offer each other roses, cards, teddy bears and other silly gifts. The restaurants also have a special Valentine menu where they offer you crappy food and you will eat it with a big smile just because you don’t want to show your other half sitting in front of you that you’re not having a good time. All the shops are also red and all the shows on TV are talking about the Celebration of Love.

But it was nice to see all the restaurants full on a tuesday evening; and it was a relief to hear something on the news other than snow stories!

See you tomorrow!
