February 14th usually goes something like this in our house:
Significant Other: “Happy Valentines Day Tim, here’s a card…”
Me: “… I thought we weren’t celebrating Valentines Day…”
Significant Other: (see below)
Worse still is the last minute scramble for Valentines Day.
If you’re shopping at the Gas Station on February 13th for something special, you should know that NOTHING is usually better than ANYTHING (ie beef jerky). Ellen Degeneres also drove that point home back in 2012.

My perspective as a 41 Year old male:
Valentines Day should be celebrated for couples that are dating, couples that are just starting a relationship or just starting to really like each other. But couples that are celebrating 10 years into a marriage? With shrieking children or emotional teenagers? No. Way. Birthdays and anniversaries? Absolutely. But February the 14th? No. Way.
But apparently, not everyone shares my feelings about Vday (because that’s not how celebrities roll). Here is the star studded version of the most romantic day of the year. In their world, it is bigger and it is better. It also makes for great Instagram too!:
