Valentines

I am a hopeless romantic. So I have high expectations for Valentines Day. Granted my expectations never are met, it is still nice to think about it....
Valentine's Day or Saint Valentine's Day is an occasion celebrated on February 14 by many people throughout the world. In the West, it is the traditional day on which lovers express their love for each other by sending Valentine's cards, presenting flowers, or offering confectionery. The holiday is named after two among the numerous Early Christian martyrs named Valentine. The day became associated with romantic love in the circle of Geoffrey Chaucer in the High Middle Ages, when the tradition of courtly love flourished.


I think that Valentines has become somewhat commercialized. In my opinion I want your time not your gifts.

Hubby and I don't exchange gifts on Valentine's day. It's not supposed to be about gifts but about showing Love for each other.

Oh, I agree. It's the time that is important.

Really, when you are in love, everyday should be Valentine's day.
