Valentine’s Day: Is It a Holiday Worth Decorating For?

  We have all given and received candy and small gifts on Valentine’s Day, but should we decorate for it as well?

  In comparison to the other holidays, Valentine’s Day seems almost insignificant. The gift giving is fun, but it’s not like Halloween where many compete with their front yard decorations and scary costumes. 

  And it is certainly not as important as Christmas where whole neighborhoods are lit up by string lights and inflatables of santa and snowmen. Plus both Halloween is when candy is handed out, and Christmas is when gifts are given. 

  The most alike holiday is Saint Patrick’s Day, which also isn’t quite worthy of decorations. I have yet to see more than maybe a handful of people decorate for that holiday, mostly people just wear green or shamrock designs.

  Valentine’s day really comes down to a small celebration between loved ones, whether that’s through heart balloons, heart shaped candy, or stuffed animals holding tiny hearts. A day for people to let each other know how much they appreciate one another. 

 But once people grow up, Valentines day candy isn’t really what they want. However, the feeling of being around others will still be enjoyable. Seeing as my family puts out small decorations, I will say that it is indeed worth it. Because even if your class doesn’t do the candy mailboxes, you can still be happy knowing it is a holiday.

  So it won’t hurt to put some relatively cheap, yet cute, decorations up on or in your home. And maybe some personal candy.
