It all begins with a kiss

Some dislikes it for its commercial aspects, some for its showy aspect, some for the simple reason that there is no one to celebrate it with.

Valentine's Day is not about having to prove one's love. It is not about having to spend the evening with candlelight dinner nor is it about boxes of chocolates. It is about having someone to love and someone to share intimacy with. The story begins with a single kiss... & where all that may leads.



To have someone to love is not just about love, but also about life. We are born and meant to love that special someone out there. It may be more than once and at times it may not last. However, love is not about commitment or about marriage. Love simply is ...

I like Valentine's Day for the fact that it serves as a reminder to us (hehe... some of us can be very forgetful while some are stone, without a reminder of it, we simply drift along... not giving the day any thought but simply move along like we do every single day of our lives). A reminder that we should pay tribute to that special someone who makes our lives a better one, a meaningful one and a delightful one. Giving gifts is an act of love. It is not commercialization. Gifts may come in many forms depending on the giver and what his/her loved one likes. It may be a poem, it may be a kiss, it may be a breakfast, it may simply be time spent together. Whatever it is, Valentine's Day is the day you pay special attention and focus on that special someone.

I found this sexy video on the net. Whatever you do guys, don't forget Valentine's Day! ;-)

If my wife was not working I would take her to see this. She is the best thing that has happened to me and I am a slave to her. Great review.

Thanks for this great write-up. Nice to not read a cynical review for a change (regarding V Day). Easter is next and St. Pat's Day.

Chinese new years is big here in San Francisco, so I know what you mean. Biggest Chinese new years parade on the west coast at the end of this month right here in SF. It gets dark quickly and the fireworks and firecrackers at night are amazing. . :)

I've never been a fan of Valentine's Day, definitely not when I was single and not even now as I'm engaged to the love of my life. I always found it ridiculous that people needed a holiday to profess their love to each other. I'd much rather you buy me flowers on a Tuesday because you're thinking of me, not because Hallmark tells you that you have to do it. Love, like life, should be celebrated every day.      Valentine's does nothing but, make people …

So Valentine's Day is coming up and while I've always been indifferent about the day, I am usually annoyed by some of the people on the day.  Now I know what you're thinking, "The people who are all sucking face and making cute noises to one another and the married couples who put on their Calender that this is one of the days of the year they're actually allowed to have sex with one another... yeah they annoy the hell out of me too!"  Actually, no.  I rather adore …

For a whole  24 hours those in love, lust, denial, acceptance and forgiveness celebrated Valentine's Day. And there isn't a place you can go to escape it. Every place I turned I saw hearts, flowers and goofy-grinned couples.      Pairs were everywhere and in everything: A tow-truck pulling a car, men and women, men and men, women and women, candy and flowers, a construction worker hammering a nail (that may have been a three-some, but you get the point). Hell, even the bums …

I love the meaning & history of this holiday, but I hate what commercialization has done to it.
Quick Tip by . February 10, 2010
The first time after 57 years that VD falls on the same day as Chinese New Year! What a special Feb. 14 this is! The next time? 38 yrs later

True love is unconditional, a sacrifice and compromise, not flowers and candy one day a year. I don't buy the hype :)

Wiki

Valentine's Day or Saint Valentine's Day is a holiday celebrated on February 14 by many people throughout the world. In the English-speaking countries, it is the traditional day on which lovers express their love for each other by sending Valentine's cards, presenting flowers, or offering confectionery. The holiday is named after two among the numerous Early Christian martyrs named Valentine. The day became associated with romantic love in the circle of Geoffrey Chaucer in the High Middle Ages, when the tradition of courtly love flourished.

The day is most closely associated with the mutual exchange of love notes in the form of "valentines". Modern Valentine symbols include the heart-shaped outline, doves, and the figure of the winged Cupid. Since the 19th century, handwritten notes have largely given way to mass-produced greeting cards. The sending of Valentines was a fashion in nineteenth-century Great Britain, and, in 1847, Esther Howland developed a successful business in her Worcester, Massachusetts home with hand-made Valentine cards based on British models. The popularity of Valentine cards in 19th century America, where many Valentine cards are now general greeting cards rather than declarations of love, was a harbinger of the future commercialization of holidays in the United States. It's considered one of the Hallmark holidays.

The U.S. Greeting Card Association estimates that approximately one billion valentines are sent each year worldwide, ...
