WHAT ARE YOU EXPECTING for Valentine’s Day?
How about a heart attack? No, not the medical emergency that threatens your life. But rather a staged attack that plants paper hearts in your yard.
Two years ago, my husband and I crept into the front yards of two friends on the evening of February 13. There we stuck colorful paper hearts into snowbanks with the message, Happy Valentine’s Day! You’ve been heart attacked! Then we fled into the darkness of a cold Minnesota night, hoping to elude barking dogs and porch lights. We succeeded.
The two young families awoke the next morning to find dozens of hearts scattered across the snow. It didn’t take them long to determine who’d done this. And then, because they have such giving hearts, these families plucked up the hearts and heart attacked two more families.
My husband and I got as much joy out of giving this Valentine’s Day gift to families we treasure as they did out of receiving.
There’s still time to plan a heart attack. Click here for details.
If you carry out a heart attack, please report back here in the comments section. I’d love to hear about your experience.
