ECF - Ten Fun Ways to Celebrate Valentine's Day

My most memorable Valentines Day ever was in elementary school.  I opened my lunchbox at snack time and instead of my lunch, I found it filled with heart shaped sugar cookies to share with my class.  I will never forget that.  It was epic!

V-Day Crack

It would be hard to top a lunchbox full of cookies but I can try with this list of fun things to do on Valentines Day.

  1. Fondue - this is truly the first thing that popped into my head.  Mostly because I just love fondue but it is kind of perfect - shared chocolate. How romantic and fun!
  2. See a good movie - it is Oscar season after all
  3. Take a walk with someone you love - ideally on a beach at sunset but there are lots of great spots. Find one and get out there.
  4. Get sweet gifts for those that you love - chocolate is a good start. Jewelry works too.
  5. Send valentines - it sounds so juvenile... unless they're handmade.  Then they become something else entirely.
  6. Take a luxurious bath - candles and wine and bubbles...oh yes!
  7. Leave secret surprises for someone special. Make their day.
  8. Watch your favorite old movie - Yes, there are some fabulous movies out right now (see #2) but some of the most romantic or fun love stories are in black and white. And it's more private too. 
  9. Make a special dinner - if you're not having fondue that is.
  10. If all else fails - knit. It would certainly make me happy.
Of course, if you're a kid then it means schools parties so above is a treat Stinkette made last night.  We've made it before but this time we included red, heart-shaped, sweet tarts.

Ooo, I love your mom's surprise. Sounds like stuff my mom did too, though not Valentine's day. Your list is a good one too. I hadn't thought about fondue in a while, but that is always a great option!

What a fun treat for the kids in Daria's class! Your list is great and I love the idea of an old B&W movie, too.

THAT is a really special gift you got! Cookies for lunch! :)
I hope you have a really special Valentine's Day this year, with plenty of KNITTING time...

Leaving secret surprises is a great idea!
