For my fellow courting christian’s. Do you celebrate valentine’s day in a Godly way? Does it matter to you? Should the man you are courting show you his love for you on that day? and if not would you be offended?

This is an interesting question! I don't have anyone to celebrate Valentine's with lol but I consider it a pagan holiday anyway so not really big on that one... However... I guess if I was with someone and if they wanted to do something special on this day, I don't think I'd be offended, on the contrary, I think I'd be touched. But, I am not 100% sure since I've never really been in that situation before.

What about you?

This is a hotly debated topic but there are reasons I don't celebrate this day. It actually was a very vulgar holiday and women were abused on this day... very sad state of affairs. I respect my wife and any other women for that matter and that is why I don't buy into this nonsense.

Just my opinion, whether pagan or not, it symbolizes relationships to some of us. Last night at a ladies Bible meet, the leader passed out carnations to us all. I was always thrilled to get a bouquet of roses from a hubby or loved one. There can be a positive side to this day and even though it's commercialized, it helps business'.

Instead of Valentines Day, I’m more in favor of a holiday called “I Tolerate You”
Just kidding!
