Want in on two secrets? First, promise you’ll tell everybody. Here’s the first one: Valentine’s Day doesn’t just have to be about romantic love. And the second one is even better: just because we’re still self-isolating, doesn’t mean we can’t show others how much we appreciate them. In fact, one of the reasons why sending cards to loved ones has become a beloved Valentine’s tradition is that in the early twentieth century, around the time when the Spanish flu was at large, people were discouraged from directly communicating with friends and family. And so, helped along by recent innovations in printing technology and lower postage rates, ready-made cards became super popular. They allowed people to share their feelings and bask in the love, all while persevering through a difficult period.
So send out the e-vites, stock up on some cinnamon hearts, and dust off your Valentine’s puns — here are some Valentine’s Virtual Experiences to help you and your colleagues spend some koala-ty time together, all while keeping up with your #CultureGoals. Because after all, no-bunny compares to you.
