Love or hate Valentine's Day?

Which?

For me, I hate Valentine's Day, period. I'm thinking about smoking cigarettes and getting drunk at some bar.

Smoking cigarettes and getting drunk on Valentine's day? Try something different-go swimming instead.

Valentine's Day is special to us...as most all Holidays are. It's also a day to say "I Love You" and you are special to me....

Haven't spend on Valentine's since 1995. Is that a curse? I didn't ever think about it.

This year's Valentine Day is hard for me. It's hard because there is snow today in Chicago area. I cannot go out and test drive a turbocharged vehicle. You know how deprived a red neck guy can get not getting an opportunity to drive a car with turbo engine.

I'm indifferent to it having had both good and bad days so I don't love or hate it. I would say that xmas is a better commercial holiday, IMO.

Yes, Chicago, February, snow.....call it normal for Chicago folks. I feel sooooo at home....

Most of the holidays annoy me at best, but I try to see the good in them. For example, valentines day has a very important purpose, that being all the chocolates packaged in cutesy pink/heart-shaped/otherwise thematic crap, which stores really want off the shelves shortly after. So they start slashing prices on perfectly good crack cocaine. I mean chocolate. Anyway. Feb 15 is a beautiful, beautiful, day. As are Dec 26, Nov 1, and wherever the day after Easter falls.

I'm having an anti-Valentine's Day dinner tonight at my house. Lasagna, garlic bread, and some salad. Got 2 couples and 8 single people coming. It's becoming a tradition and a nice way for singles to get together without the pressure since some couples are also "whatever" about Valentine's Day, so it isn't like it's a singles party. It's a blast. In fact, I need to get a bigger house. My dinner parties get bigger every year. People are gonna have to sit on the floor....

You can say that everyday to someone you love , you don't need a holiday and a Hallmark card to tell someone you love them.

You could watch the movie about the Saint Valentine's Day massacre to cerebrate the day.

Well, here's the obvious question, then. Why?

,
It must be nice to be able to tell ALL ur friends, family, spouse, SO...even ur pets "everyday" I love you and ur so special to me"....As for myself, my family lives in different states and we don't talk everyday....I send them an ECard....and only talk to them twice a month.....

Valentine's Day is special to me & my family, as it's always been. Even one of my sisters, her birthday is Valentine's Day.....Even when I was a kid, it was a special day!...And it remains so in my heart.

Valentine's Day is also special to those who have a gf/bf...a "special one." If my hubby or SO did not give me something for Valentine's Day, I'd feel slighted.....So, no matter how some people don't like Valentine's Day, for whatever reason, then too bad...it does mean a lot of those of us who enjoy it.

I always hated Vday... we used to celebrate it by having all the single women come to my house and we would eat chocolate and watch horror movies.

Then, 5 years ago, my dad died on Feb 13... and now it still sucks, even though I have been married 4 years.

BUT we did have fun going out for Mexican this year!!!!!

I don't love or hate it. It's another day. It happens to fall the day after my wedding anniversary. Other than that, it's a day like any other. Hubby and I are not "romantics". Not enough money for that and too many medical issues. We do what we can.

I was never big on sending cards out to people and the cost of cards are insane today! $4.00 for a card! What a rip off!

Ate dinner at a Chinese buffet restaurant with the family...yum yum. I am eating white-chocolate filled Lindt truffles as I type this.

Don't love or hate the day, but it is just another day where we are obligated to buy anything pink or chocolate-flavored for our significant other, and hope that we get rewarded later with a "happy ending"....

I love it and my hubby decorated my car with Valentine's this am while I was getting ready for work. As soon as the little one goes to bed, we are going to have a romantic time with each other.
