Valentine's Day is, was and always will be my favorite holiday! Ever since I was a little girl, my favorite color has been red. I remember every year on Valentine's Day, we got to wear red to school…everyone! Now that I'm older and have children, we make heart-shaped pizzas every Valentine's Day. One year, I was going to try something different, and my sons seemed insulted that I would change our tradition.
I am also a school teacher. Other holidays may come and go, but the students and parents in my class know that Valentine's Day means a BIG party! My husband and I also share a fun Valentine's tradition. At Starved Rock Park, the eagles return mid-February. We now go to the lodge for the weekend and watch the eagles return…we LOVE it!
