It depends on what age and stage you are in terms of how this holiday feels. One writer expressed the progression of Valentine’s Day this way:
V-Day Single: "I am missing out on so much joy."
V-Day Dating: *stresses out over finding the perfect gift*
V-Day Married: "We should probably, like, go out or something."
V-Day Married w/ Kids: "You need how many valentines? For people who can't even read yet? By when?"
Seventeen hundred and fifty years ago today, Saint Valentine was imprisoned, beheaded and buried on February 14th, 269 AD for helping persecuted Christians and for marrying Christian couples against the orders of the emperor. While in prison he prayed for his jailer’s daughter and her blindness was healed. On the day of his execution he left her a note signed, ‘Your Valentine.’
