Creating Traditions for Saint Valentine’s Day #Giveaway

February is commonly known as the month of love, where we celebrate the life of Saint Valentine who is the patron of love, young people and happy marriage.

In the spirit of St. Valentine, Catholic Central wants to know the most romantic thing someone has ever done for you or an amazing moment that happened in your families history. If you have another idea for a Saint Valentine’s Day post, we’d love to hear it.

Something that I always think about Saint Valentine’s Day is remembering that small gestures matter year round in showing a person how much they mean to you.

While my Grandma and Grandpa are in heaven, they always showed unconditional love. I liked to say they had a “Love like Johnny and June”. They taught me about giving things your all and that you make sacrifices for the ones you hold in your heart. They were best friends that drove each other bonkers (especially Grandpa’s pranks on Grandma) but you knew that even when they were mad at the other, they loved more than anything.

I love putting meaning and sentiment into the things I do. This year, I have several gifts going into celebrating Saint Valentine’s Day by showing the reasons why I love. It’s important to always tell people what they mean to us as we never know what might happen. Sometimes, we need that reminder of why we matter. So while I’ve done these things this year, I make a point to do it throughout the year just because.

 

Thanks to Catholic Central, I get to share with you 10 Tips to Rock St. Valentine’s at Home!

  3. We usually have dinner at home and watch a movie. Very relaxing and stress free 🙂 Thank you

  4. My hubby and I have a night out, sometime during the month, and we have a special family dinner on Valentine’s Day with the kids! We all make cards for each other! Thanks for the chance to win.

  5. We don’t have any traditions, primarily because it can be hard to make plans when there are other obligations that will likely derail them. We just wing it every year!!

  6. We just always spend the time together as a family and make something heart shaped for dinner or dessert.

  7. Though pre-written cards are more convenient, there’s nothing quite like a one-of-a-kind love letter from your sweetheart.

  8. I usually fix a nice meal and my sweetie gets me chocolates and flowers. I love the rose lamp. Thanks!

  9. My tradition is to make a special dinner for my family and a heart shaped chocolate cake.
