happy valentine’s day – don’t even think about it if you are in saudi arabia

hope every one of you has a wonderful day….

silly, and perhaps sophomorically so, even as commercial as this celebration may be, the motawea, the saudi virtue police, have banned the celebration of valentine’s day in the kingdom. they have been doing spot checks at flower shops to make sure they are not stocking roses.
