It’s about the steak too! If you guys didn’t enjoy your Steak and BJ Day last week because you’ve never heard of it, then it’s time to get educated and not let that important day slip past you again.
This holiday is a Valentine’s day for men, set on March 14. There is growing opinion among some folk, that Valentine’s day is slanted toward women. While both guy and girl are supposed to celebrate the day with flowers, candy, and cards, men don’t really value such gifts. As stated by the official Steak & BJ website:
men do not want candy. Men have no need for flowers or teddy bears.
So it seems the gift giving is a bit one sided. Ladies appreciate the romantic overtures of gifts, dinner, and other forms of proof that he really cares. Guys appreciate that their ladies appreciate the gifts, dinner, etc, and breath a sigh of relief that they made it through the holiday intact.
Steak and BJ Day was founded by Boston radio host Tom Birdey. It’s been around since about 2002 and is meant to be a way for the ladies to thank their men for their Valentine’s day efforts. Just as Valentine’s day is all about the woman, Steak and BJ Day is all about the man, and the man likes things direct and simple. No cards, no flowers, no special nights on the town, just a Steak and a BJ. That’s it.
If you think this holiday is just a fad, think again. According to statistical data, Steak and BJ Day is growing exponentially. It’s primarily observed in the English speaking countries and is most popular in Canada, followed by the UK, the United States, and Australia.
Steak and BJ Day has to be earned. So put on your thinking caps guys and don’t wait till the last minute. Next year, blow her away with an awesome Valentine’s day and she will do the same one month later.
