In your house do you see it as a massive con or do you celebrate it (Is that even what you do lol)
I have told Hubby not to bother this year, we normally get flowers and cards etc.. I just can't be bothered with it this year!
Have you got any plans? Doing something nice and romantic?
04/02/2014 at 14:13
No, we don't bother with it. I see it as something for unmarrieds to be honest, I have a wedding anniversary which is when we celebrate our love for each other.

We celebrate it, but only insofar as exchanging cards and a small gift - we don't go anywhere, and in fact this year I'll be out for the evening without MrDD!
I see it as a bit of a "Hallmark Holiday".
We are celebrating it this year, but only by accident. We go away on holiday to Butlin's on Valentine's day, totally unplanned, it was just because it's the first weekend of the Half term. So we've said that that is our Valentines present to each other. I'll probably get him a card.

not since we got married, we celebrate our wedding anniversary.

This is my response off a similar thread on hitched -
"We don't bother.
I'd rather my H told/showed me he loves me when he wanted to, rather than because V day says he should. It means nothing."

AK - I am very much the same, Tesco had a whole aisle of stuff and H said do you want presents this year, and I told him no, he has all year to buy me presents not just one day lol!

I hate how they over inflate prices too, it is ridiculous.
My H buying my fave chocs "just because", or a top he saw, and thought i'd like means SO much more, than him seeing loads of over-priced tat, and thinking "sh!t, best buy her something or she'll think I don't love her"

Exactly AK- What makes me laugh the most is it seems to be the single one's that gets more upset over it than people in relationship's already had a single friend on facebook post a picture about it. Made me laugh
I am up for any extra reason to be romantic or make a little effort to recognise each other. Date of when we met, when we shared our feelings, when we got engaged, when we bought our house, the anniversary of getting our dog (!), Christmas, New Year, V-day, birthdays, a day off together, an evening on our own. And any other day in between that the mood takes us. Doesn't need to cost anything, we set a tenner limit last year for V day and it was fun. I wrote a poem and bought him a bookmark, I think!

Nope, we aren't doing anything for it. H usually works it, but this year I think he's off. We went out last Saturday night and had a rare meal out together, and he bought be flowers last night in stead.
I'd rather that than pay the over inflated prices.
On V day, we send each other a "happy almost pancake day" text. True love!!!!

Oh AK - I am going to do that to Hubby and see what he says hahaha!
Counter - That sounds nice actually means more than the crap you get in shops!
Chids Yup deff inflated prices!

No we're not doing anything. Our wedding anniversary is in January anyway so it feels a bit silly to do anything for Valentine's day straight after that. We did get engaged on Valentine's day so its impossible to top that. (That was back in the days we did make an effort - he took me out to the theatre, then proposed before taking me out for dinner).

We love a celebration so we do something every year, but then, we would celebrate anything. This time, we're having our V day this weekend cos we have the skids next weekend, but its a double celebration as we both got new jobs in Jan too x
