Make Jizo Your Valentine

Valentine’s Day. A day for heart-shaped boxes, long-stemmed roses, and cute quips contained within colorful Hallmark cards. Every February 14th, we flock to florists and chocolatiers like ducks to water in order to engage in what has become the almost ritualistic practice of honoring an individual (or individuals) we romantically admire.

You’ve likely been busy with costumes, candy, kids… or thinking you should be.  And that is just the beginning. Less than two months away is Christmas. A few weeks away is Thanksgiving.
