Valentine's Day -- Friend or Foe?

Valentine's day is coming up. 

Does this date on the calendar find you happy or  distressed? 

If it is a distressing day, what are your plans for self-care?

I have never really given Valentine's Day much thought. I have been married for a while so hubby and I get each other a token gift and that is about it. It basically is just another day for me.

what about you?

My husband and I don't really celebrate the day.  We are of the opinion that we don't need one special day to declare love and we think it's really just a holiday for the flower, candy and greeting card companies to make a profit.
