  • for me its a "Hallmark" holiday, but really its just an excuse to get my mom to babysit overnight so DH & i can enjoy some loud alone time (we play Band Hero, i know...we're lame haha).

  • The day itself has been a day of paganism and a day for Christians to both celebrate their own holidays. I say a day is a day just like any other if you choose to do a holiday to the glory of God then what wrong do you do?
