Valentine's Day

I am just curious about your views on Valentines Day. Is it a day of love? Is it commercialized so much that many just feel this pressure to buy and do? Has finding a great gift become a chore? I will post what I think in a bit, I was just curious what others felt.

I don't care what it is. It's just another excuse to love on my husband. :)

I personally love all holidays and try to do something small for all of them. I'm the type that will find any excuse to buy people something or to do something special. I don't do big for valentines day just a box of chocolates or a coffee mug.We won't be going out because we can't but I may makle a special dinner or something.

So,to me,no it isn't a chore. It may be just some stupid commercialized holiday but I love it anyway =)

It is a day to love...you do not have to buy gifts...we make gifts for each other...it can be commercial if you let it be!

It has never been a big deal for us. We buy each other something small, maybe cook a nice meal at home, watch a movie together. For me, I think couples should treat each other kindly 365 days a year, so I don't need a holiday. The kids like decorating the house though.
