February 14th = Second Halloween?

We live in an interesting time. That's good and that's bad. But one of the things that I consider good for humanity are memes. Hilarious anecdotes put on images for us all to enjoy. Some are nonsense, but some are topical. Like this one...

Now, Spongebob might be on to something here, as I've actually seen this taking root. For all those single folks out there, spooky couples, or people just plain sick of Valentine's Day; why not give Valentine's Day a good dose of a good way...

Here are my top 5 things to do on February 14th, AKA Second Halloween.

1. Trick or Treat?

Buying chocolate for a loved one is a staple of Valentine's Day. That means that candy is extremely plentiful right now. Go door to door and ask for some candy, because chances are, they have some to give.

2. Host A Party

Misery, as they say, loves company. A grand tradition of Halloween is to gather with friends and have a party. Order some heart shaped pizzas, buy as much alcohol as you can, and tell scary stories of exs past.

3. An Addams Family Marathon

No one knows unconditional love and spookiness quite like Gomez and Morticia. There's a reason those two are the epitome of the perfect relationship for so many.

4. Wear A Costume

I disapprove of slutty Halloween costumes, but on Halloween II: V-Day...why not? As long as you are in the safety of your own home, I see no harm in this. Bonus points if you've found someone to dress up with you.

5. Give Your Heart To Someone

I'd prefer metaphorically, but I'm not in charge of your life.

If that's not enough Halloween for you, Walpurgis Night is coming soon and then only a few more months until Halloween season. Ah...I can almost hear the faint sounds of screams, can't you?

Until next time, keep it spooky, kids.
