Will New Jersey Have Two Valentine’s Days?

Bill would designate a second holiday, to boost business.

“Democratic New Jersey Assemblyman John McKeon wants Gov. Chris Christie to spread the love by declaring a double Valentine’s Day in the Garden State this year,” Business Insider reports. “McKeon introduced legislation last week calling on Christie to embrace an extra holiday devoted for love as a way to boost the economy. New Jersey’s second Valentine’s Day would take place August 14, 2014 and would be officially designated as ‘Half St. Valentine’s Day.'”

    Christie wants to be loved by the “little people”. Yes, he lied, lied and lied, but they will forgive the big boy. After all, he is Jersey!!!
