|Candy as far as the eye can see...|
I noticed that about 75% of the candy was marketed toward children. When did Valentine's Day become a major holiday for kids? Last I checked, it was a romantic holiday for couples. Now it seems we have to send candy-filled goody bags to school, have parties, etc. When I was in elementary school, we exchanged small cards that *might* have had a tiny lollipop attached, and that was it (and we were excited and happy for it!). Not anymore.
I want to stop the madness, but I don't want to be the "bad guy," so I will be looking for some sort of balance in the coming weeks. I'm looking for ideas! How do you celebrate in your homes and schools?
