Do you celebrate Valentine's day? Why or why not? How do you spend your day on that date? I currently don't have any partner, so most probably I will be spending my Valentine's alone. I don't believe that this day is made especially for partners only. This day is to be spent with anyone you care and love. What do you think?

Can you please help me get a date? LOL! I will probably spend it going to the restaurant alone and when a guy sit beside me bang! I already have a date. Seriously, that's probably what I will do. I don't have a bf so why not? or maybe firing squad in Luneta. what do you think?

hahaha LOL! I am single also, and I don't know what to do on that day. Good thing it's a week day, so most probably I will be working during the day. At night, I guess I'll be sleeping early. hahaha!

I'm making gift baskets for my family, friends and coworkers. Here's a sample: Valentine Bark Any assortment of Valentine's candy can be used in this recipe with great results - message hearts, cream filled chocolate hearts and small cinnamon hearts. 1 pound white chocolate, semisweet chocolate, or milk chocolate 2 cups assorted Valentine's Day candy Line a large jellyroll pan with parchment or wax paper and set aside. Melt the chocolate in a large heavy saucepan over very low heat or in a microwave, stirring frequently until the chocolate is smooth and melted. Spread the melted chocolate evenly on the prepared pan. Sprinkle the candy evenly over the chocolate and press the candy into the chocolate to make sure it will not fall out later. Set aside the chocolate to cool. Once the chocolate has set, break into small pieces. Store the bark in a tightly sealed container at room temperature or in the refrigerator. Wrap the candy in plastic wrap or brightly colored cellophane and tie into small bundles with bright ribbon for gift giving. Add a special tag or Valentine to each little bundle. Makes about 1 1/2 pounds candy.

handsome - handsome guy
I am sure my hubby and I are going to have a nice cozy restaurant. My hubby is soo romantic he is full of surprises so I don't know yet what to come but I'm sure we will have a dinner date after work. Sis, it's OK if you don't have a partner for the holiday, you are beautiful and smart, I'm sure you will have the Mr. right in your life soon.

No I don't celebrate it. I believe that for a loved couple everday should be a valentine's day. Everday is a bright new day in which they should cherish their love in a bright new way.

I am too do n't have any parterner yet and stay almost with faimly that day too. I know some information about Valentines day which i want to share with u. Valentine's Day falls on February 14. It is the traditional day on which lovers express their love for each other; sending Valentine's cards, candy, or donations to charities, often anonymously. It is very common to present flowers on Valentine's Day. The holiday is named after two men, both Christian martyrs named Valentine. The day became associated with romantic love in the High Middle Ages, when the tradition of courtly love flourished. The day is most closely associated with the mutual exchange of love notes in the form of "valentines". Modern Valentine symbols include the heart-shaped outline and the figure of the winged Cupid. Since the 19th century, handwritten notes have largely given way to mass-produced greeting cards. The Greeting Card Association estimates that approximately one billion valentines are sent each year worldwide.

Valentines Day - A day that is not just for lovers but also for those that you love
You don't have to have a partner or husband to enjoy this day I agree with you. I use to and still do send cards to my friends and family on this day. I love them all very much. My husband and I will probably go somewhere to eat or I'll cook a special meal. But no it is not just for lovers it is also for those that you love.

I think the peole you love you can give them a card. I always get my Husband a card. he never thinks about getting me one. he just gives me money. so I am sastified. But I give cards to my Aunt and some people that is special.
