Happy Ballantine's Day!

I am not really into Valentine's Day. I can't help it but feel that it's a "commercial day" another way to spike consumption. Being myself a real romantic (the old fashion way) I think love should be celebrated everyday with small gestures; lucky me my hubby thinks the same way.

Now, for some reason -maybe because I am not a native English speaker-, each time I hear Valentine's Day I think "Ballantine's Day"... and before you ask, no, I am not a drinker at all!

I am pretty sure that is because of this homophonic trait that I tend to check first the whiskey's website to see if they have a Valentine's Day campaign. They usually don't but I find that their actual ad is pretty romantic even if it wasn't conceived for this date. Check it out yourself:

Beautiful images, romantic in some way (is like spreading love through music) and -like they say about the whiskey- it makes an impression. Happy Valentine's/Ballantine's Day!
