Happy Valentine's Day!

Valentine's Day is my favorite holiday. It's not because I love hearts, roses or have a boyfriend. My love for Valentine's comes from being taught from a young age that it shouldn't just be about romantic love.

Valentine's Day should be about telling and showing the people you care about that you love them. Yes, you should do that all the time, but its always good to have an excuse to show it. How often do you really give the people you care about flowers, candy or cards? Yup, thats what I thought, not very often.

Some look at Valentine's Day as a made-up card company's holiday. I see Valentine's Day as a great opportunity to make life more interesting by celebrating something with people I love. Plus, February is a gross month, why wouldn't you want an excuse to celebrate something?

I totally agree with this. This is reassuring, hopeful, smile-worthing, enjoyable, loving, and kind.
I love Valentine's day too. Not for the romantic love, but for happiness, friendship, and family love.
Happy Valentine's day, Jessers. I love you!
