Valentine's Day, Love it or Hate it?
Just curious what everyone's thoughts were about Valentine's day.
To be honest, I've never been fond of the day. When I was single and uninvolved, it served to rub it in my face. Now that I'm married, it's another obligation to fulfill. How many other holidays see the prices of one of their main products (a dozen long stemmed roses) go 5-10x higher than the rest of the year? That certainly doesn't happen with turkeys at Thanksgiving, for example...
I got engaged on Valentine's day (over a decade ago) to try to take some of the stigma out of it. It helped, but I'm still not fond of the day.
