Happy Valentine’s Day! Or as the Finnish like to say, Ystävänpäivä, Happy Friends Day 🙂 As I mentioned yesterday, I think this is a fun holiday to celebrate who brings meaning into my life. It doesn’t necessarily have to be about love or longing or romance or heartbreak. I think it’s nice to focus on the positive – good friends, delicious chocolate, and fun little cards. And when I’m thinking about people I’m thankful for in my life, I can’t help but think of all the quiz takers out there. Thanks for making sure I’m not just writing quizzes for myself 😉
Still, Valentine’s Day wouldn’t be what it is without love. I wanted to write a quiz that described how love is symbolized for each of us. I wasn’t sure how I wanted to do it exactly, until I found these images of candy conversation hearts with symbols on them. Looking over the symbols, I realized that they fit a lot of the types I was already developing in my mind. I love it when images can help inspire and develop a quiz idea for me.
Curious to know more about your love type? Take What Symbol Candy Heart Are You? You’ll see what candy heart with a symbol matches your personality. And I’ll interpret the symbol to say what it means for your love life. While these tasty little hearts are specific to Valentine’s Day, this quiz will tell you how you approach love both on this holiday and every other day of the year. You’ll learn what your ideal valentine is like and how you may like to celebrate today.
Take What Symbol Candy Heart Are You? and let me know what you think of your result. Does it accurately describe how you view love? Are you doing anything to celebrate Valentine’s Day today?
Okay, who here really, really loves Valentine’s Day? *crickets* What? No one?
It’s so surprising to me that Valentine’s Day is still a big deal because I don’t know anyone who truly loves it. I know many people who hate Valentine’s Day. I know some people who tolerate it, and I know some people who like certain aspects of it. Anyone I know who celebrates it celebrates it semi-begrudgingly, and that includes women. So what gives?
I’m not sure how such an unpopular holiday remains popular, but count me in as one of the ambivalent, “meh,” Valentine’s Day people. It’s never been a romantic holiday for me, and if anything it’s been a bit of a disappointment. Mr. Blogthings and I don’t really celebrate it with each other, as we prefer to demonstrate our love in little ways every day instead. I find by not making a big deal out of Valentine’s Day, I can appreciate it a bit more… at least for its traditional, cultural, or pagan aspects.
Despite not really thinking Valentine’s Day is a romantic holiday, I do think it can be a fun holiday if you strip away the expectations and drama. It was always a day for candy and cards when I was growing up. And I like to think of the people who touch my life as all my valentines. So of course, that includes everyone who follows this blog and takes my quizzes. I hope your day tomorrow is filled with treats and smiles, whether you decide to spend it with someone special or not.
So, in the spirit of loving, hating, or feeling mixed about Valentine’s Day, I present one of my favorite quizzes on the topic: What’s Your Valentine’s Day Personality? This quiz will predict what you love or hate about this controversial holiday.
Take What’s Your Valentine’s Day Personality? and let me know what you get. Is it true? How do you feel about Valentine’s Day? I’d especially like to hear from all of you who have strong feelings on the matter 🙂
