What a fun question. I do care about Valentine's Day because about seven years or so ago a friend of mine decided to declare Valentine's Day Random Acts of Kindness Day.

She wasn't dating anyone at the time but thought she could still have some fun. It was one of those things where she would slip a little change into the expired parking meter, let someone go ahead of her in traffic. Nothing big, nothing showy, just small ways to be cool.

Over the years, I've come to appreciate how she's re-associated the purpose of this day for me. So yes, it does mean something to me, but in a slightly different way. My husband and I still exchange gifts, but an old friend's crazy idea just makes the day even better.
