Valentine's Day is next week! This fun fact came to me from my daughter, who is very excited to hand out Valentine's this year to her classmates. She's in a class of 15 kids and one of only a few girls so she's pretty confident she'll score some Star Wars tattoos next week. Are you ready? We're not huge on this holiday around here but I do like to take a look at what people used to give their sweeties "back in the day". If you're new here, you'll learn that I love a good retro magazine to keep me entertained. Most recently, February 1958 issue of Good Housekeeping. This one was full of ideas to help you celebrate.
Most of this issue was devoted to giving the ladies advice as to how to make their man's day as happy as they should. Menu suggestions include making him a special hamburger....
Of course any lady who is getting ready for Valentine's Day should get on that WONDER DIET ASAP! Apparently, dieting was always something women were
obsessed with talking about.
This "wonder diet" (aka starvation) includes grapefruit and black coffee....
There was also a special column specifically for the gentleman in your life outlining How To Kiss A Lady's Hand. It is hysterical.My favorite two parts are "NEVER KISS A LADIES HAND IF SHE'S UNDER 18!" and "DON'T JUST KISS THE PRETTY GIRL'S HANDS - UNATTRACTIVE WOMEN LIKE TO HAVE THEIR HANDS KISSED FROM TIME TO TIME AS WELL!"
Do you have any special plans on February 14th?
