So, do you do anything to celebrate Valentine's Day?

If so, what do you do?  Share it here!

In the past, I've put together little Valentines for people in the office, and would leave it on their desk along with a small bag of candy that I put together.

I would usually buy some bags of Dove chocolate hearts,  Valentine's Hershey Kisses, gummy hearts and things like that, and then put an assortment in a small Ziploc bag, and leave them with a valentine.

Last year, I left Super Friends valentines that I found online.

Today I decorated the windows of my apartment for Valentine's Day.

These are the windows during the day.

I love your decorating for all the different holidays! And damn, I'd love to be your coworker for the food/cookies/candy alone! :laugh:

We don't do anything for Valentine's. It's yet another holiday stores try to make money from, like Halloween, but which are not home over here. Maybe it'll take on over the years with the younger generation.

We do have Fasching (carnival) in February, which is a big thing and takes place the week before Lent starts.

But I did start buying Easter decoration already! :laugh:

That's my view of Halloween and Valentine's Day over here. When I was a kid, Halloween wasn't a big deal for most adults. Just an excuse to sell stuff.

In hardly more than two weeks it will be Fastnacht Day!  :D

Yeah, holidays have really become a way to get money from the public. 

as long as you don't allow yourself to overspend, it's good.  ;D

There's a small farmer's market near me that's open year-round. I like to shop at outdoor locations when possible, so I was browsing there and found these beautiful stone hearts that have ammonite shells embedded in them. I think they would make good Valentine's Day gifts for men. One is destined for my son, and I guess I'll give the other one to R.
