There are certain holidays that I still celebrate like an eight-year-old. Valentine’s Day is one of them. I never got into the whole romance aspect of it. I like to give Valentine’s cards and treats to everyone, just like we used to in elementary school.
Valentine’s Day is a great opportunity to show a little love to the people in your life, not just your special someone. It doesn’t have to be anything elaborate or mushy, just something that says, “I think you’re alright and I like having you around.”
Every year I choose the most fun box of Valentine’s cards. One year it was Spider-Man and another year it was Hello Kitty. Then I make cupcakes or cookies and when the day comes, I hand them out to just about everyone I come in contact with.
You don’t need a special day to let your significant other know you love them. You should be doing that on a regular basis. But sometimes it’s good to be reminded to let the rest of the people in your life know that they are special to you. That’s what Valentine’s Day means to me.
