What’s Your Valentine’s Day Treat?

Valentine’s Day is a good excuse to let your loved ones know you’re thinking of them. It’s also a perfect excuse for us to give some love to our Fair Trade chocolate fans. How about you? Is it flowers, candy, a nice dinner, or maybe a movie? What do you love to get, and what do you love to give, for Valentine’s Day?

    My husband cuts out about 50 or so hearts of different shades of pink and red and writes funny things or sweet things on it. Me and my two girls look forward to it every year. We leave it up for a week or two! It means a lot because I know how hard he works at it trying to come up with something different on each heart.

    My friends all get jealous! lol

    I love Valentine’s day. After the pressures of Christmas giving – valentine’s day is a chance to let people know that they are special with no strings attached. There is no expectation of reciprication! I send a card to my kids, leave small token gifts of chocolate (fairtrade, of course) anonymously on my coworker’s desks and make dessert for my family.

    I would like to receive a card that says I am having a Mass read for me by a Missionary and He receives the Mass stipend.

    Valentine’s Day has not been a very important day for me since childhood, maybe because for 46 years I was a nun, and for the 23 years before that and the 3 years since I returned to lay life, I have been more interested in serving people than in either receiving or giving Valentine treats/greetings. It may also have something to do with my birthday falling about two weeks after Valentine’s Day, so that that’s absorbing my thoughts?
    So to answer the question asked, I don’t have any favorite things to give. Occasionally I will send Valentine notes to family members or send candy to my former Community members.
    But that is usually connected more to Saint Scholastica Day on Feb. 10. I don’t expect to get anything for Valentine’s Day.

    We do nothing. My wife and I think of Valentines Day as a Hallmark Holiday, not one of religious or national significance.

    For Valentines- I like to make chocolate treats for my family. I will also make a special dinner complete with our good tableware and candlelight. Then we play a game that the whole family will enjoy.

    My kid’s classmates- we make treats for the valentine boxes instead of buying valentines or buying treats.

    Work- I will set out a choloate treat for co-workers and customers. Share the love.

    What do I like to receive…flowers (Ideal-Roses for my planned Blessed Mother Mary Garden) that can be planted in the yard or a great houseplant.
