I cannot argue with that kind of logic, My typical go to gift is edible arrangements, Iíll have to find out now if they do chocolate covered bacon for my daughter!

Thanks for the input.

We typically do a fancy dinner. Not so much on Valentines Day but, very close to it.

Flowers, a card, chocolate and some type of super sugary candy will also be bought. This will be be year 17 of the same MO. I haven't heard her complain about it yet so I figure it must be OK to continue.

One year I made a heart-shaped meatloaf. Wife loved it.

I get a double whammy. Her birthday is Feb 16.

One of our sons was born Dec 26.

Re: Do You Celebrate Valentine's Day?


Never saw any use after elementary school. How special is it to do something on a day your are supposed to do something? Oh look, you got me flowers, chocolates and took me out to dinner on the day you are supposed to get me flowers, chocolates and take me out to dinner.

I show up to my wife's work a few times a year with flowers. I take her out on dates and we give gifts when it is special, not because someone made up a holiday and says we have to do something or we are bums.
