In all the 127 years of my life I have never done that.

I haven’t picked one up yet.

I pick blank cards to write something in.

Okay, it’s small, made of plastic & has lots of random numbers on it…..that’s right, it’s a credit card.
May as well cut to the chase.

I help the kids made them. One year, when my son was trying out the local public school, I made 30 rainbow book marks for him to pass out, but he told me most of them ended up in the garbage.

I have always helped my Grandsons make cards for their Mom.

Mine’s great. Not to a “valentine,” though, just to my parents :) We have a longstanding family tradition of using Valentine’s Day to write silly poems. Mine last year was really great, and hard to beat, but I think I did well this time!

It’s a 12-stanza, ABCB-rhyming, very alliterative (each stanza heavily features a letter of the alphabet) silly poem that’s all about Scottish stereotypes, since I’m in Scotland now. If anyone’s megabored I can post it!

I have wonderful new housemates whom I jsut moved in with a week ago, so I might try to find some red paper and doilies and make them valentines with short silly poems.

I am going to give a special friend Valentine this year after giving Cupid a five year sabbatical. The card front has a simple heart with a few random terms of endearment in its shape and then inside it says “Valentine when I think of you my heart skips a beat.” One of the funnies I heard this year was on a radio station announcement that said “Singles, have you ever wanted to tell Cupid to :.&&# off?”

Valentine’s day is extremely overrated. Just saying.

A great big red paper heart with lace around it. In the center a “Get Out of Jail Free” card from a Monopoly game. It’s a private joke.

I’m a big, ol’ romantic, so I’ll be getting her something.

@MilkyWay @likipie Holidays are what you make of them. We also celebrate May Day, the equinoxes, the solstices, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Grandparent’s Day Independence Day and several formerly Christian holidays, such as Halloween, Mardi Gras, and Christmas, and any other time we feel like celebrating.

If the commercial aspect of it bothers you, don’t buy anything, just make it a special day your own way.

Does anyone remember things like Founder’s Day or State’s Birthday, or Circus Day, or the County Fair? We used to celebrate all of those things, also.

@YARNLADY I tried to enjoy Valentine’s day, but it’s ruined. It’s not what I’VE made it, it’s what other people have made it.

I love Valentine’s day but I believe it is over commercialized. It’s one of three days I would not want be taken out for dinner or given flowers (roses are not my preferred flower, anyways). My card would not even be a card. It would be a note, either attached to something or an intimate invitation…. Imagination is the key, imo.

I’m planning to make one for my husband tomorrow. I’m not sure what it’ll say yet though. I’m thinking of putting an Uno card in it and writing about when we met.
