“To-morrow is Saint Valentine’s day. All in the morning bedtime. And I am maid at your window to be your valentine.” As romantic as this Shakespearean line might sound, truth is most of us don’t speak the middle English language anymore, and secondly, maybe doing something extra for that special person, besides reciting a Shakespearean poem, in your life can make his/her day extra special this Valentine’s Day. If you forgot (we do have busy lives after all) or perhaps didn’t know where to go, here are a few suggestions for your date, for your friend or for yourself to consider this Valentine’s Day. Or, you can always come up with a few Shakespearean lines, too. Whatever works …just let us know how it went.
