Valentine's Day is celebrated by millions of people across the world. So we'd LOVE to know...

Do you celebrate it? Do you have any traditions with partners, friends or family? Do you love it? hate it?

Why?

Valentine’s day doesn’t mean much to me. I would like to care, show love and feel loved everyday. It is sad that even Valentine’s day is used for commercials every year.

I don't celebrate Valentine's Day as it is a commercial enterprise. Unfortunately this year for many, Valentine's Day was a complete flop due to COVID-19. People were unable to celebrate in the traditional way, because of lock-down restrictions.

I neither like nor dislike it. I think it is important to let loved ones know you love them whatever the time of year.

I love Valentine's Day, I understand that it has become quite consumerist BUT think any day focusing on and reminding us of love instead of negativity is a great thing for society.
