Have you ever given a Valentine's day present to a friend who's had a bit of a rough time in relationships? I know, I have. I've also sent my sister cards and chocolates on Valentine's day. I know this 'holiday' was promoted by card companies to milk more money out of us, but the romantic side of me still kind of thinks it's a beautiful and innocent way to celebrate love. I remember this time of year in high school being a very exciting period for my girlfriends. I didn't have a boyfriend, so it didn't affect me much, but my friends were always nervous about whether the object of their affections were going to give them Valentine's Day cards and presents or not.
In her first year of Primary school, my 5 year old daughter was given a bag of chocolates and a teddy bear as a Valentine's day gift. There was also a card inside the bag, and the little boy (who sent it) had written lots of little kisses under his name. My daughter was totally embarrassed, but she ate the chocolates anyway (she was only 5). This same daughter also received 2 marriage proposals that year from two different little boys in her class. Yes, Valentine's day is usually a day of going out for dinners, fancy cards and romantic presents - even if you're 5 years old!
