Soapbox Saturday - Valentine's Day

Well, Happy Belated Valentine's Day! I sure do love my readers!

So this week I mostly just wanted to see what your opinion is on Valentine's Day...

Me, I'm not against it, but I'm not completely swept up in the hype either.

I like the concept, a day to express your love for those special people in your life, but at the same time, why can't everyday be a day to show love.

You know, like around Christmas how everyone goes the extra mile be kind and serve other people. Why can't that 'spirit' last all year round?

That's how I feel about Valentine's Day. I think everyday should be an opportunity to do small acts to show our family, kids, and friends how we appreciate them.

I also don't like how stereotyped Valentine's Day has become. I don't like that women just expect to be pampered and showered with gifts. For me, the small things mean the most. My husband brought me a  chocolate shake from In-N-Out after working a 12 hour day.

I also read a statistic that 18 Billion is spent for Valentine's Day. I mean, REALLY? When so many are struggling to find employment and make ends meet and people are plunging themselves into debt to spend! There are sooo many other ways to show your love for someone.

So my question to you is what did you do? And how do you feel about Valentine's Day?
