Do Tell: Do You Have a Valentine's Day Tradition?

Do Tell: Do You Have a Valentine's Day Tradition?

Every year on Valentine's Day, my parents eat dinner at In-N-Out and head straight to Krispy Kreme for dessert. Their tradition started out as a joke, but they had so much fun the first year they did it, they haven't skipped a year since! Now I'm sure not many people are as random as my parents, but I wouldn't be surprised if others have Valentine's Day traditions too, so ladies, do tell, what's yours?

My husband and I say to each other "Happy Spendy Day". That's about it. And we love it.

Nothing out of the ordinary...dinner at a nice restaurant, exchange gifts, a little romance...the usual.

We get dressed up and go out for a nice dinner, somewhere small and with a 'Valentine's menu', then get down and dirty in the backseat of his car down some back alley. Hah.

yeah the bf and i are pretty untraditional too. our first year together he made reservations for us at a super nice restuaratnt-like a 5 course meal. well, considering im the type of gal that will either eat everything on my plate or nothing at all (dont ask-its inheritied from the madre) I told him thanks but no thanks, save your money, and we ordered takeout and ate it on my patio with our xmas lights on (still up from two months ago-but its Austin, so thats not wierd). we've played it low key ever since nd do the same thing every year pretty much.

Yes, we have a tradition. We ignore it. Valentine's Day has become way too big with too much emphasis put on the wrong things. And I hate to say it, but it's the women who expect their men to deliver. Gee, no pressure on the poor guys.

I think I'll wear my ugliest clothes, not shave my legs and tell him I have a headache. I just hate Valentine's Day. And I'm lucky because my BF hates it too.

I just grunt and scowl and wait it out until it's over. Lol. I should lighten up though!

well, one year i made cupcakes that spelled out "feelings are overrated." but the past couple years i've gone out to dinner with single friends and hit the bars to comisserate with the other single people.

URGH, ALL THIS VALENTINES CRAP IS SICKENING ME. ITS JUST A DAY FOR COUPLES TO RUB IT IN THE SINGLE PEOPLES FACES. SO OVER RATED.

We make our presents and depending on our moods, we both contribute to a favorite-dinner making session. Plus, we buy a bag of candy that we each like, or ice cream, or a mini-cake, cupcakes, SOMETHING, and watch a movie and eat it!

My fiancé and I started a tradition last year that we plan to keep. A small, under the radar, but very good restaurant down the street from my apartment runs a special Valentine's Day menu every year filled with wonderful and interesting food that we use Valentine's Day as an excuse to splurge for!

My boyfriend and I have a tradition of doing something decidedly un-Valentine's Dayish. We always go out with a group of friends, both in relationships and not, to someplace unromantic. This year, we're going bowling! Unfortunately, we're not QUITE as set in our traditions as your parents, but hopefully someday!

No, we don't have a Valentine's Day tradition. Not to sound like a Debbie Downer, but I really think it's a silly Hallmark holiday... so we don't celebrate it! You shouldn't need a day on the calendar to tell you to show your SO love; that should occur every day naturally. Just my opinion :)

Perhaps TMI, but I started a tradition years ago when I was a single gal. The 14th is my reminder for my annual girly check-up. This year me and my newlywed hubby plan to go for a sunset run and eat a picnic dinner afterwards.
