Also, happy midseason return of “The Walking Dead,” day!
If you’re thinking, “that’s not a holiday,” well, it should be. In fact, I would argue that it’s just as much a holiday as Valentine’s Day.I might even argue that it’s more of a holiday.
After all, holidays are about bringing people together, and that’s just what “The Walking Dead,” does. Tonight, millions will gather to witness its return.
True, a few characters may not make it through the night in one piece. And there’s no doubt that countless walkers will lose their lives, but how is that different from most holiday gatherings?
Valentine’s Day, on the other hand, might be the most divisive of all the holidays. For every V-Day devotee, there’s at least three naysayers who will gladly share their opinions on why Valentine’s Day should be outlawed. That doesn’t sound like the spirit usually associated with holidays to me?
So, why not mix things up this year and celebrate a holiday that truly brings people together, and then tears them apart (just the walkers…hopefully)?
Of course, there’s no reason you have to choose. You can always celebrate both. In fact, Hallmark has even provided you with several e-cards just for the occasion: Hallmark – The Walking Dead.
On that note, I’ll leave you to enjoy the rest of you Sunday. Have a very happy Valentine’s/return of “The Walking Dead,” day!
