fête-ing valentine's day in france


The French like preparing for holidays in advance, and there always seems to be some kind of schedule to it. Every decoration possible, in every store and on every street, seems to pop up overnight, as if it was all planned--which it probably is...

One of the cute little stores downtown, that has nice gifts and things, just put up their Valentine's display. It has your typical array of picture frames, mugs with hearts on them, and other gifts for a significant other. And then, in the middle of all of these cutesy things, there's this.

A knife stand, made of a poor little red man being stabbed all over his body. Lovely, France. That's really romantic.
