Valentine's Day may mean different things to different people at varying stages of their life. When you are a child, Valentine's Day may be an exciting day because you get to give and receive cards from your friends. As you mature, the day may take on a different meaning. It may provide an opportunity to express love or receive an affirmation of love. This may be romantic or just friendly. If you have loved ones that like to participate, this might be another day to share and celebrate your love.
