Valentine's Day for many is a day to go all romantic, and declare your love for the special person in your life. However, it's also time for many restaurants, florists and card shops to make a lot of money by charging over the odds for Valentine's Day paraphanelia. Do you celebrate Valentine's Day or do you think it's become too commercialised and opt out?

Over the years I've tended to celebrate Valentine's Day less and less and I think last year, I completely managed to forget about Valentine's Day until I turned the radio on. It's not that I don't think it's a good idea to show someone you love them, more that I try to do this all year round, without waiting for Valentine's Day to remind me. It's a shame that everything becomes so expensive on Valentine's Day, as for many it is a great time to let someone know you love them.
I've never had any interest in romance, and therefore have never had any interest in Valentine's Day. The holiday doesn't even share anything in common with the parson it is named after, and all it does is make singletons feel bd about themselves.
Don't have anyone now to celebrate with,

but I still think its a lovely idea.
No. I think it's nothing but another opportunity for retailers to exploit our sense of guilt and consequently make a profit. Besides, if you love someone, I think you should declare that fact to them every day.

No I haven't celebrated it for a long time.
EVERY day of the year! *wink*
I haven't for two years because of the death of my partner. Now that I am with someone new, hopefully 2014 will be a big fat Y E S in that department. Shall wait and see.
I'm a big fan and love to celebrate Valentine's Day. I do not think its completely necessary to do the grand gesture of buying flowers, chocolate, cards and the lot because I think Valentines day's purpose is to bring people together. I prefer a quiet night in, cooking together and enjoying each other's company. Of course, you can do this everyday and any day of the year, but Valentine day is a reminder to appreciate your significant other.
Yes, I celebrate with my husband. We don't go in for romantic meals, but usually mark the day with flowers or a card, or I get the kids to do craft for daddy.
A valentines craft is a lovely idea
We do but it is very commercial and kind of forced. Last few years we've just made the extra effort at home - candle lit dinner etc.
Unfortunately, not anymore!

Loved it when I was able to!

Red Roses', & delicious Chocolates', with a well thought- out Card,

Might pull myself out of the 'doldrums', & buy as said, just for myself, in 2017, just to do something DIFFERENT!
No, not anymore.
Well past that lovey dovey stage. I do think it is over-commercialised though. One year at the high school two of my grandchildren attend, the older pupils were taking orders for single red roses to be delivered anonymously to recipients as a fund raiser for their end of year function, so more people are turning it into a moneg maker.
