As an only child, I was probably a bit spoiled in this regard. In addition to Christmas, Easter, and my birthday, Valentine’s Day was given near equal importance in our house. Every year, my mother and I made handmade valentines for my classmates, covered the windows with hearts, and on V day itself I would wake up to a special cornucopia of red and white goodness.
I’m thinking about carrying on the tradition with my girls. This lovable tea party would be a simple inexpensive way to make the day special. It was my great-grandmother’s favorite holiday, and in her spirit we must keep it going!
What about you? Is Valentine’s Day a special one in your house, or do you regard it as a Hallmark holiday manufactured for revenue?
