Survey Thursday – Celebrating Valentine’s Day on Valentine’s Day?

February 12, 2009

* Will you be celebrating Valentine’s Day (for one, and if so will you do it) on Valentine’s Day?

OK, so this Saturday is Valentine’s Day (To all you forgetful men out there, you’re welcome for the reminder. πŸ˜› ) and I’ve basically heard from two sides of the camp on this one:

One side believes that celebrating Valentine’s Day – in all its glorious glory – on February 14th is a guarantee must. And that includes the whole buying roses and going out to dinner thang. And if you don’t, you obviously don’t love your husband/wife.

The other side believes that it’s all a “stupid” (and I quote) marketing ploy where flower shops and restaurants overcharge for the sake of the “special” day.

Where do you stand on this one?

I’m more with camp 2 (remember the cooler group in cabin 18 at Camp Erdman πŸ˜‰ ) –Β and thankfully for me, wifey is with me on this one – so we’ll be celebrating Valentine’s Day on, of all days, the night before: Friday, the 13th. Haha! We got a laugh out of that one, but, since we’re saving ourselves from the crowds and some hard earned “scripps” (thanks dews! πŸ˜‰ ), we’ll be the ones with the last laugh.

Talk to me!
* What say you? Do you go on Feb 14, or pick another night?
* Do you just ignore it entirely?
* Do you agree that it’s all a marketing ploy?
* If you’re single, where do you hang out (so I know where to send my single friends πŸ˜› )?
* Any Valentine’s Day traditions?
