Valentine’s Day can be different things to different people. For some, it is a day of expectation, waiting to see what special treat or trinket the signficant other has dreamed up. For others, it is a day to celebrate love by exchanging cards, flowers and dinner reservations. For many, it is just another day, sometimes a day just to get through by tuning out all of the special-day-of-love fuss and try to forget that there is no one to send a card to.
Here is a small collection of what some folks do – or have done – for Valentine’s Day.

My husband and I do not usually celebrate Valentine’s Day in a particularly special way. We may have a nice dinner with wine and candles at home, but that is not really different from many other Friday nights, Tuesday nights, or any other. What we do make sure to do on that day is talk to our mums.
