Does anyone here really go all out decorating for Valentine's day? I just put a small wooden sign on my door and that's it. There is a house on my way into Indy that decorates the front of their house with red and white lights. They have all white for Christmas and then add some red after Christmas.

Nothing here. My wife and I exchange something small, but her birthday being the day before, she gets a bit more. I usually try to take her out to dinner or something.

The long and the short of it.............no!

It's certainly not a big thing over here (despite the card manufacturers best efforts) but we never did even when I was home in Canada.

No, not much fuss about it at our house. We don't wait for Valentine's Day to be nice to each other, so it's not a big holiday, although Mr. usually gets me a box of chocolates. When I see red and white lights outside in February, I just think of them as late/early Christmas lights!

I decorate but very little. I have a few decorations that sit around on hang on the wall. I do have a small valentine flag in my front yard and a light up heart in my window. I usually buy my Boys a card and maybe an ice cream or make cupcakes..something fun for them but not a big deal. My Hubby and I usually go out to dinner the weekend before or after and exchange a small gift.

I may have to take my shotgun and go shoot down some more mistletoe. Does it still work even if Christmas is gone? ;)

I have some wooden bead garland with little balls and hearts that I string on my hutch and around my window... and some hearts and cupid decals on my front window. And my year-round tree has some hearts on it now! I have snowmen up, too, so I try to tie them both together.

No, we don't even have any decorations for Valentine's Day, actually we don't even celebrate it anymore, not even cards. (sorry Hallmark) cheesy We get the boys a little something but we wait until Christmas and our birthdays for gifts for each other.

I have a 4 1/2 foot tree in my dining room that's decorated for Valentine's day. And I usually put something on my front door. My kids are still pretty young so I do a little something for each holiday to make it fun for them. :)

No decorations for us. My wife and I exchange cards, small, pressies and go out for dinner at the weekend, but no decorations. Don't know of anyone over here who does decorate for V day except some stores.

Well, you know I do! I don't go crazy but I leave my snowflakes and snowmen up and add some hearts, etc. I just made a paper chain (funny, I was the one making it and my 2 boys had no interest, ha!) and then I cut out some hearts for a garland... I added some sparkly heart garland to my snowflake tree (it's my year-round tree!) and sprinkled some glittery hearts to my snowy mantle... and I have some beaded red garlands with hearts and round beads.
