What Valentine's Day Means to Me
Now that I'm an adult, Valentine's Day is a lot different. To most, Valentine's Day is about extravagant gifts, roses, jewelry, sexy lingerie, etc. Or, about disappointment when you don't have a special someone to share it with, or if he/she doesn't give you the aforementioned gifts. To me, it's about spending time with that person you care most about. It doesn't even have to be a significant other; I used to love going to see romantic comedies with my best girlfriends on V-Day. Even though I think people tend to put too much emphasis on V-Day, and build it up too much, it is nice to have that day out of the year where you set aside quality time that you spend with someone. Anniversaries, birthdays, Valentine's Days...well there aren't many other days that you can actually do that! That is why I'm not as cynical as some about the holiday.
What does Valentine's Day mean to you? What's your favorite thing to give on Valentine's Day?
