What is the point of Valentine’s Day? Just the word, “Valentine” evokes images of romantic escapades, unique surprises and the pressure to do better than last year.
I think the whole idea is just to have another loving milestone to celebrate with your loved one. For entrepreneurs, it is a special moment to monetize that loving feeling. For lovers, it is a day to celebrate your relationship that lasted until that day. For long-time lovers, it is an ordinary day because everyday is Valentine’s day.
Personally, Valentine’s is a challenge for me each year to showcase my love for my special someone, in the most creative way possible. Sometimes, I live up to the challenge but sometimes I don’t. But what’s the point of Valentine’s anyway…
Whatever the point is, here are the Top 9 Ideas on How to Spend Your Valentine’s Weekend this 2009:
