Do you like Valentine's Day?

Some people say that it's just commercializing. Personally, for me, I think that there's nothing wrong celebrating it. I don't like it that much but I am not against it. Do you like Valentine's? Do you have plans for this special day?

Yes it is commercialized for those who choose to celebrate it with expensive gifts, cards, and flowers, but I think that you can make Valentines day a sweet romantic day. The choice is yours. The best Valentines present I ever received was a surprise picnic planned by my sweetheart. After the picnic, I told him that I had to run over to the hospital to visit my sick Uncle. My sweetheart, asked if he could tag along, and brought his chess board with him. (My uncle loves chess) This act of kindness and service was the most romantic sweetest valentine I could imagine, and it came with zero commercialism.

I don't go crazy buying expensive gifts and knock myself out for it, but I think any excuse to celebrate love is a good one :) I like the idea of appreciating my loved ones, I don't expect a diamond necklace or anything, but I look forward to a small surprise and an excuse to cuddle

yes of course. me and wife will be having a lunch date. we want to start early i am sure at the evening there will be a lot of people around and it is not easy to get a seat at Friday's so we rather go on a date for lunch. we want to go to a studio for a family picture. we want to go to ace water spa too but i think next time. my child just got sick two weeks ago... although we know that he has recovered already we dont want him to be too tired for the mean time.

That's cool. Hope that you guys will have a good time and a nice family time together. Yeah, I bet all the restaurants are full in the evening this day and the traffic is just a mess so it's better to celebrate it early. Have fun!

My husband and I did nothing for Valentine's Day. I did give him a card. Today is our anniversary but we won't be doing anything special today either. Things are kind of tight now so I can't see spending a whole lot of money. I agree its become too commercialized.

Happy anniversary! It's not about the material things anyway. What's important is you're still together and you love each other.

Hi janyen! I think a simple greeting would do, what's important is you appreciate someone's love for you so that a really good thing. Happy Valentine's, too. Have fun.

I like valentine's for all its forms from the viewpoint of couples celebrating their love to all those singles and "anti-valentine celebrations" we should all celebrate it but we don't have to celebrate it the commercialized way.
