Well, V-day was my husband's birthday, so there was never an option to celebrate there while we were together... And it's my boyfriend's anniversary with his spouse, so I don't feel right joining in on that.... so I've never really had any particular traditions.
I like the idea of Valentines, about the same as I like the idea of most holidays. I gotta say, though, what I would want is a cheezy homemade card with red paper hearts and doilies and bad poetry (Think: OMG, BBQ. Don't you know that I love u?), pink candy popcorn and movie in for the whole family.
I think your ideas are GREAT! I'd be happy to be treated that way!
