Celebrate Valentine’s Day Just Not at Work

See also

Let’s be clear right from the start, Valentine’s Day is a fun day for many people, just not everyone. Unlike the majority of holidays, (such as Thanksgiving, July Fourth, or Halloween, which are celebrated by the majority of people) Valentine’s Day is celebrated and known as a day all about romance, affection and love.

Even though you may love your work, your workplace and your career, romance, affection and love and the display of these in the workplace do not have a place in the workplace.

This is not me being the scrooge of Valentine’s Day it is the law.

A card, an email, or even a gift specifically sent to a specific person worded a certain way may have serious career consequences. Instead of me listing what words to utilize or not utilize the better solution is to leave the Valentine’s Day behavior in total for your own family and loved one(s) and not in the workplace.
