So, this week as you see the flowers, bears, hearts come out on desks and hallways I thought it’d be fun to get folks thoughts on the holiday.
Do you find that your employees (or other loved ones) are a little distracted — or people getting a little down, maybe you get some divas or some drama? Or is it just, “business as usual.”
Okay — I wouldn’t say that I’m overly girly or romantic — but I really like Valentine’s Day. I’m totally the one cutting out paper hearts, decorating the house, baking stuff for co-workers, putting pink dog collars on my dogs — I just think its fun. Last year I
made handmade crafts for my team. Its less about over
the top stuffed animals and dozens and dozens of roses — I just like spreading the message of love. As a kid, I always loved writing the little cards to classmates — I just thought it was fun (and sweet) – I always wrote a special message on each one and took care match up the cards with each person (Individualization much?!? Yup its in my top 5). Whether I have a boyfriend or not, a date or not, roses or not (tulips are really more my thing) — I dig the day! Its nice to see people smile. 🙂
… and this year, Valentine’s day is on a Friday — even better!!!
