Alright, this poll is just for fun!
Sure it is! It’s a day I go “ hunny since you love me buy be corals!”
I think its just another day. But at the same time it is a day to remind us how we are supposed to treat our significant other, and show them that we do care about them deeply.
We don’t go all out, but it’s nice to go out to dinner without the kids and just re-connect. I think we get so used to the day to day, that we need a little break to remind us how it all started.
All of our holidays in this country persist for corporate interests. We're just pawns buying crap we don't need because they say it's a "special day." Lol, but it's kind of true.
I'm not complaining though. My wife woke up and made me pancakes today!
I agree with this. It's definitely a fake holiday, but it's also still nice. We'll usually go out to Buffalo Wild Wings or something because the lines everywhere else are insane and she loves chicken wings.
There is some historical bases for this holiday (http://www.history.com/topics/valentines-day/history-of-valentines-day) so I am not sure I would call it fake. It certainly is a profitable one for the greeting card industry.
I do appreciate having one day a year set aside for the remembrance of love and romance.
Valentine's Day is the one unique day, joined by just 364 other special days each year, where I am reminded my wife makes me the luckiest man alive.
My wife and I haven't celebrated it in a few years. We actually celebrate March 15 which is the day we started dating, still, instead. That way it has some meaning.
Best part about this is we don't pay the holiday markups for gifts and we can actually go eat at a restaurant without booking a month out and being stuck with a pre fixe menu. It's really a win win. Valentines day is totally a Card company holiday.
I would say it's one of the most dangerous holidays we have......it you forget it, your dead!
So yes, it's a holiday.
Bet we'd all be Valentines Day fanatics if BRS had a LUST sale.
Me and my skimmer celebrated!
Satanic holiday, love your woman every day. Here is the rabbit hole for the day.
Well said and I agree.
Quite a handsome guy you have there!
He looks like a "keeper."
According to my wife yes
Dave and I will be married 37 years in June and were dating almost 5 years prior to that and were buddy friends 2+ years before that. I hardly remember life without him! We are starting to get to an age where we consider time with each other a precious gift and we don't need a holiday for that. We do get cards however.
Hell no it’s a made up holiday by the dang card and flower giants. If you only show your wife or husband, boyfriend, girlfriend or mistress love on one day a year that’ll tell you why you’re single.
My wife can't see my votes, correct?!?!?!?
Its a fake holiday, but also happens to be the day of my first date, and the day we got engaged 3 years later. We go to the same restaurant every year (I set the bar high for a first date... lol). Today happens to be our 5 year anniversary of when we started dating. So I don't believe in the holiday, but it has meaning to me now.
If it were a holiday i wouldn't be sitting here at work.
