The thought of it might make you cringe — cheap chocolates, tacky cards and saccharine romance, whatever that is. For many, Valentine’s Day means another night with the ice cream carton, wiling away the lonely hours.
But you might also think this annual celebration of love and friendship has gotten a bad rap. To you, maybe it’s not all about commercialism, grade-school crushes or a reminder of that recent break-up. Maybe you have an experience that you feel captures the essence of what Valentine’s Day is all about. Perhaps that’s when you met the love of your life. Or when you declared your love to your one and only.
