Oh boy – it’s that February holiday we all love to hate, or hate to love, or perhaps just enjoy ignoring?
However you personally happen to feel about Valentines day, anyone can point out the qualities of the holiday that make it divisive. For instance – if you’re in a relationship, how long you’ve been in a relationship, whether or not you’re deathly allergic to chocolate, your financial situation. These are all
factors that can affect how joyously (or not) you celebrate the holiday of love.
Fascinating, right? That’s why we wanted to get the scoop not only on what your plans are for tomorrow evening, but your thoughts, feelings, and histories concerning the holiday! Here’s a bit of what we uncovered:
A whopping 61% of you are celebrating Valentines Day this year, and make it a point to celebrate every year! 9% of you admitted that you don’t usually partake, but this year you are totally planning on doing something special. (That makes us smile!) As for the rest? A combined 29% of you feel rather “meh” about the whole ordeal.
We also took a walk down memory lane and and reminisced about some of the best gifts you guys received through out the years. Of course, there was a healthy smattering of flowers, jewelry, and chocolate goodies, and some of you even got engaged on Valentines Day! Here’s what else you had to say:
“The best gift I ever received for Valentine’s Day was a home cooked meal from my children. Melted my heart I tell you” – Raygen A.
“Handwritten cards from my husband and son were by far the best gifts I’ve received on Valentines day” – Krista H.
“I received a painting from my boyfriend. It’s one of my most treasured possessions.” – Caitlin H.
“My husband made us a picnic style dinner and we enjoyed it in front of the fireplace. It was completely romantic and cost-managed at the same time. 🙂 ”- Kari E.
