Anyone NOT hate Valentine's Day?

I've always loved Valentine's Day, and part of it is because it was my late maternal grandmother's birthday as well! She would be 74 today, if alive. Even though she's gone, it's still nice to think about the memories we had with her on her birthday...and then DH being super sweet to me on Valentine's Day helps!

DH went above and beyond for our daughters and I today! We were raised to believe Valentine's Day was meant to show ANYONE you love, how much you care!

So anyone else NOT hate it?

I love it! I don't think there is anything wrong with Having a set day for showing Your SO that you love them.

Well I didn't always have an SO to show love to, when I was younger, but even when I didn't, I still loved the holiday because my family and I would do stuff for each other (flowers, candy, cards) to show we love each other.

DH is starting this tradition now too and brought both our girls home a rose today, during lunch :) He says they'lll always get a flower from him on Valentine's Day!

I think it's fun, and cute. DH is away for work this year, but we'll go out when he gets back. DD keeps telling me she wants to get her cake pop, and vanilla milk with daddy because he promised to bring her when he comes home.

I like it. I think it is fun for the kiddos, and I like to give treats and valentines to people.  I am just not that into the whole Romantic mushy stuff, and buying expensive gifts.  Overall, it is a nice little holidaythat has a background of good intentions, that has been blown way out of proportion, much like most of the other ones have.

 I don't hate Valentine's Day. We just don't really celebrate.
