Personally, I don’t care about the commercialism of the day. I consider it a reminder to acknowledge those people we care about, both romantically and otherwise, in a way we probably don’t think of throughout the year.
I aim to send a note, letter or email to people close to me for Valentines Day, just so they know I care all year, even when I forget to tell them.
For those romantically inclined, I wrote an article on writing love letters, and another on how to present love letters in a special way. I also wrote a number of Valentines articles for Save Time Online, including Valentines ideas for singles!
And for those interested, Valentines Day, Valentine’s Day and Valentines’ Day are all grammatically correct! It depends which grammar rule you believe is more important as to how you write the word!
Valentines Day – the name of an event, such as Good Friday or Christmas Day
Valentine’s Day – the day owned by or relating to Valentine
Valentines’ Day – the day owned and celebrated by valentines (lovers) everywhere
The same answer applies to Mothers and Fathers Day, too.
So what is your preference for writing Valentines Day? Is that just what feels right or have you thought about what is ‘correct’?
