    Customizing Valentines Day

    Customizing Valentines Day

    The normal customs of Valentine’s day are obvious to most. Writing cards to your class, candy, and a dinner date with a movie have been the go-to’s for many Americans on February 14th.The fun of Valentine’s day has been stripped from the new generation in Boston schools with the ban of Valentine’s day parties. Teachers are asking parents to send their kids into school with origami instead of continuing the tradition of candy hearts and cards on valentine’s day. There is no doubt that Valentine’s day parties have lived in our childhood memories for years, but our culture is surely shifting away from these traditions. Skipping the flowers and chocolates and getting creative with Valentine’s day has also been on the rise. Valentine’s day has taken on a new meaning for most; one that Is more personal and less glued to tradition.

                Lately, Valentine’s day has been about making new memories, but just like ISlide stays rooted in its humble beginnings, my favorite memory of Valentine’s day will always triumph over those of the new age Valentine’s Day. My memory of opening cards from each of my elementary school classmates will always hold sentimental value to me when February rolls around. Whether it be taking a break during the day for candy, or awaiting a love letter from your crush, elementary school valentine’s day parties will always hold the most nostalgic and pure meaning for me.

                Cultural shifts surrounding Valentine’s day have most likely thrown many gift givers for a loop, leaving them wondering what the best gift to give would be. This year, customize your Valentine’s day with a hot pair of ISlides that your significant other will fall head over heels for, and never forget to stand in what you stand for!

               

    World Champions: Boston Red Sox

    World Champions: Boston Red Sox

    The Red Sox are World Champions again! After what was arguably the best season by any team ever, they rolled into the playoffs as confident as can be. But who wouldn't be when you win 108 games in 6 months. Their first playoff test was a familiar foe... the New York Yankees. Although that series was tied at one point, the Red Sox handled business on the road outscoring the men in pinstripes, 20-4 throughout two games. 

    Boston moved on to the World Series to face yet another rival, the Los Angeles Dodgers. Given the dislike between Boston and Los Angeles, tensions were high on and off the field throughout the series. The Red Sox got off to a great start in the series with a 2 game lead heading to the West Coast, but the Dodgers took Game 3 after an 18 inning, 7-hour battle. After that battle that went well into the early morning, the stage was set for an exciting final 2 (or 3) games. 
    In true Boston fashion (and what other fans have come to expect at this point) the Red Sox rallied together two inspiring performance to claim their 9th title, cementing them as the greatest Red Sox team ever and adding to the City of Champs resume. 
    Boston fans were obviously excited for yet another parade which has almost become an annual holiday but this year brought something a little....different. By different, we mean a broken trophy. Thanks to a strong toss of a bud light, the World Series Trophy being held by Brock Holt lost a few of its iconic flags. That didn't seem to stop the party though, as the Duck Boats, chants, and celebration continued to be heard throughout the city streets.
