Alissa Patrick (apatrick12211) Tuesday, February 14 is Valentine's Day. In the United States, this is commonly known as a holiday to celebrate your loved ones by giving them flowers, chocolates, gifts, and valentines (mostly in school-age children). It has become more commercialized; some call it a "Hallmark holiday", a tongue-in-check reference to the famous card company. In the United States alone, the average Valentine’s spending has increased every year, from $108 a person in 2010 to $131 in 2013.

Because of this commercialization, some people loathe this holiday, and will even host anti-Valentine's Day parties, or celebrate it as Singles Awareness Day (aka SAD). Some people who observe S.A.D. do so out of spite for Valentine's Day, or they gather to celebrate or to commiserate in their single status. Some want to remind romantic couples that they don't need to be in a relationship to celebrate life.

This challenge is simple- do you LOVE Valentine's day or do you HATE Valentine's Day? =)

Do one, or both!

LOVE IT!!
