What is Valentine's Day to you?
Gifts, spending time with the loved one, an occasion to go shopping? What do you think of this day and what signifiance does it have?
I think Valentine's day is supposed to be a fun reminder of how great love can be but it also can be ruined by the pressure to buy certain things and make a big show. I think exchanging cards or valentines maybe candy is good- oh and saying I love you too.
I prefer not to buy too much - I think actions speak louder than gifts. One year I'll make a heart-shaped pizza for dinner, another year some silly craft - just something simple saying "I love you." With kids now, I have them make home-made cards for Mommy ... but I will buy chocolates too!
I agree, megs11237, as pressure can be a dawnting thing when Valentine's Day is comming. I don't agree with expecting something for such an occasion, but I have noticed that many people do..
Slushatwork, really nice! Getting the children involved in this is a wonderful idea. I think that a heart-shaped card made with the kids is worth 100 gold ones from the store. Just reminds people of a loving and warm home and not a cold jewlry.
Doesn't mean anything to me at the moment, maybe one day it might, who knows

Do you think Valentine's Day is just a way for the card, flower, and candy companies to make money?My husband thinks so.

I'm writing some hubs for valentine's gift ideas and I was going to seperate them into expensive and inexpensive ones. I was just wondering how much everyone spends on Valentine's Day, whether you think you spend a lot or not. Me and my boyfriend, for example, usually spend about £30 on each other...

Do you think Valentine's day is a commercial holiday being pushed by the greeting card companies?

I've just completed a hub on what valentines day gifts for what women really want. Looking into a man's perspective, I don't think they really have a clue! So, thought that a discussion on this would be really helpful...So what do you think women really want?

I always wondered why those little words effected people so much, so i ask my fellow hubbers out there to tell me and try to answer the question, "why is saying i love you so hard?"
