Kids, I am a person who is just as romantical as the next jerk. But, I can't say that I see Valentine's Day as anything to get all hepped up and romantified about.
I mean, really. Do you know who St. Valentine is? Do you know how St. Valentine somehow means you give cards and candy? Is there anything particularly amazing about this Thursday than last Thursday? Do you love your partner any less or more today than you did, say, Wednesday? So what difference does it make? I am a person who believes in appreciating your partner all year 'round, not just on one or two days a year.
So, having said that, I'm going to give three awesome ideas for something much better to do on Valentine's day than the standard boring gestures of "romance."
