    Do you really care about Valentine's Day?

    If you didn't get a gift from your spouse or boyfriend/girlfriend, would you really care? Please explain your reasoning.

    Immensely.  It is a sweet opportunity to make a special day all about love.  Who doesn't smile when given even the silliest little Valentine?  I know I do.

    No, we don't celebrate Valentine's Day.  We try to appreciate each other and treasure our relationship every day.  I hate to be a cynic but Valentine's Day is a Commercially driven creation to make money.

    We do special days for each other now and then, making dinner for the other, do nice special things together.  It's worked for 41 years--well, so far anyway.

    My husband cares more than I do ... I could care less ... and my middle name is Valentine!

    It is a decent holiday with Pagan origins, and I like that. smile As for getting gifts, we give gifts throughout the year just on whim but on Valentine's Day, it has never been a big tradition or expectation to give or receive gifts.

    I did used to care until my husband stopped caring.
    It is kind of sad that only one side care about the event.
    Most likely care about the event for KIDS now.

    I think Valentine's Day is simply great. I agree why it should be just one day in particular to show love, care, and affection. But having a particular to do extra and dole it up with all the love and affection you can show for your loved ones is simply magical. Gifts don't really mean much but the whole excitement and the effort behind it makes it so uber pleasant. As for me, thoughtful gifts do melt me. I got this cute Juicy Couture as a gift last Valentine's day and it simply melted my heart. http://bagbunch.com/juicy-couture-rocke … ed-design/ Who doesn't like gifts? smile
