What does Valentine's Day Mean To You?

Valentine is a day of love and it's doesn't mean so much to me because I try to show love daily but I do get the appeal of a particular day being set aside to do something special.

Have you Given Or Recieved a Valentine Gift Before?

Last year I gave chocolate out and I received a lot of chocolate also, I was pretty happy because I love chocolate.

there a need to celebrate Valentine's Day?

There is a need because a lot of people don't consciously show love daily so it's like a reminder to show love to someone special.

How would you be spending this year's valentine day?

Valentine's day is a Monday so I might spend the day before with my person and then Valentine's day itself with family.

I plan on getting stuff for certain people around me no matter how small also..

I also have church in the evening.

My brother anybody that needs valentine's day to show love to someone doesn't love that person and that person is not special...

If someone's special to you, you wee show love, Valentine or no valentine.

They don't need it to show love, it is just a reminder.

Abi you'd be too busy in the whole year to remember that you have a girlfriend?

Nna... Forget that thing.

If I love someone so much, I make time for the person.

How about looking at it this way, Christmas for example is a special day for Christians to celebrate Jesus' birth. It's not like they don't celebrate Jesus everyday of their lives.

What does Valentine's Day Mean To You?

Valentine’s Day is like every other day to me. I believe everyday is a day to show love and I try to show love and kindness in little ways everyday. So just like everyday, Valentine’s Day is just another day to be kind to others.

Have you Given Or Recieved a Valentine Gift Before?

Yes I have. My female cousin gifted me a box of cupcakes on Valentine’s Day.

Is there a need to celebrate Valentine's Day?

To be honest, I don’t think the focus should be on promoting love on a particular day. Everyday is a day to promote love and kindness.

How would you be spending this year's valentine day?

Most likely carrying out my usual daily routines and just showing kindness as I usually do.

I understand your view here.

I have a question though, if you were to chose a day in a year to appreciate love and kindness among kinfolks and maybe lovers, do you think Valentine's is perfect for it?

Just the way people celebrate birthdays... You know, that kind of thing.

If I was to choose a day in the year, I would definitely pick random days each year. I like to surprise people. So the thrill will be to take them unawares when they least expect it and make them smile 😊😊😊 @drceeyou

Well then... From your answer, maybe Valentine is just a big unnecessary scam.

Maybe it shouldn't exist...Cos we don't need Valentine to do what matters to us... Show love in a sincere way.

Valentine's Day does not really have a real meaning to me but if perhaps you want to celebrate it, it should be among your love ones and not a compulsory thing.

I have never received a valentine gift and that is because I don't count it to be anything. Probably one day someone will give me sha..

This year's valentine's, I would probably be sleeping in my house or probably hangout with my friends.

Valent ine to me is just like everyother day to love, both the special one and the general one.

Yeah I have given some gifts back then, flowers, cake, fruits... but these days, I give books, books that I love and I share them as pdf to people I love and request they send me books too.

E be like say I go dey call that day.. but love go dey everywhere.
That way, I guess there will be a lasting effect of what we call valentine and we get to finish the book before the month runs out too.

What does Valentine's Day Mean To You?

Valentine is meant to be a day to express love specially to people that matter to us. But really, it doesn't mean much to me.

Have you Given Or Recieved a Valentine Gift Before?

I've received a t-shirt gift before from my then fiancee who's now my wife. I can't really remember giving out a gift before

Is there a need to celebrate Valentine's Day?

I don't think there's a need because the day is now being celebrated as what it wasn't meant to be.

How would you be spending this year's valentine day?

Its just a random day so I'll definitely be at work.

Valentine day is a day to express love.

Have you given or received Valentine gift before

Most times whenever the Valentine day falls on Sunday its always used as love feast where you pick a number and whoever you pick you exchange gifts with one another so yes have received and exchange Valentine gifts before.

Is there a need to celebrate Valentine's day?
Most people hardly express love,the only time they do is periods like this,so a time to express love like this is needed

How would you be spending your Valentine

Valentine is no big deal for me, never really celebrated valentine, but once in a while I like attending valentine parties and watch people doing lovie lovie.

I have never received a valentine gift shaa, but i know back in primary school one teacher scammed us and asked us to bring her valentine gift or we will fail our exam.

This year valentine I'll be spending the Day with my one and only lover in the bed most part of the day and take her out and buy her nice things. As my phone be the only lover I get, I go buy am new screen guard, come buy am new pouch, probably red and white. Come change her wallpaper. I go shaa pimp my lover lol

I honestly don’t remember having a Valentine’s Day celebration. It’s really not something I think that highly of, and that’s because I don’t believe I need to wait on a particular day to show extra love and care to my loved ones, but that’s not to say I can’t join in in the spirit of the occasion if I want to.

This year I feel inspired to join in. Though I don’t remember receiving a gift on valentines day, I think I might be receiving some this year. I’m not sure how the day will go but I’m in the mood to celebrate love this time out.

What does Valentine's Day Mean To You?
Simply put, valentines day is the feast day of St. Valentine to show and appreciate love. One can show love through different means like alms giving, partaking in various infrastructural activities, helping elderly ones, and then ones spouse.
Have you Given Or Recieved a Valentine Gift Before?
I have given valentine gifts to a loved one, but the one I happily did was giving to an orphanage last year and celebrating with them. Also, I have received nice stuffs like a box of perfume.
Is there a need to celebrate Valentine's Day?
Although, there is really no need for Valentine's day because as humans we should be able to show love to friends families, neighbors and those in need at any point in time. But for people that only do special stuff for loved ones on specific dates can have the need to.
How would you be spending this year's valentine day?
Nothing much this year as everywhere is dry😂, So it's just me and my family 🙏

First of all, I've never really been a fan of valentine. I've never received or given a gift during valentine.

The closest thing I got to one was when my secondary school crush bought short cake biscuit and drink for me as Val's gift. That's the closest thing I've had to actually celebrating Val.

I feel it's for married couples though. If you're just dating, what's the stress?

As I am like this, it's money I'm looking for ooo. Courting down to Val has never been in my agenda cos it's just like every other day.

Some might say, it's a day to relax and show love to loved ones. That's not bad, we can do that every other day as well.

The hyping makes people indulge in all sort of things to justify their celebration.

This is just my opinion though.

Some people even lose their lives in the bid to get gifts from strange people.
Some are so pressured by social media that they end up compromising a lot, so they can post on their feeds and look happy.

It's really crazy and sad at the same time @nkechi

Yeah it really is sad.

It's few hours to val. Despite the abuse of this day, I still wish there was someone to share this love with asides myself.
