People seem to have two highly opposing views when it comes to Valentine’s Day. First, are the people who go all out- they plan surprises for their significant other, exchange gifts, write mushy cards and make it a day of love in the true sense. Then there are people who are dead set against it. These guys call the entire day a sham and capitalist conspiracy and refuse to even acknowledge it in the slightest. Well, honestly you don’t need a day to celebrate love but now that it’s there, why not?
Even if you don’t want to go for a full-blown date, spending time with your boo at home also works. The idea is that you’re appreciating each other and there’s no one way to do that.
