Like many of our holidays, Valentine's Day has become a marketing vehicle, with each American spending an average of $134 to celebrate this day of love. I have enormously positive feelings about chocolate and flowers (really, they're two of my favorite things), but we can enjoy these Valentine's Day treats while still adopting more meaningful traditions. What about designating it as a day your family spreads love through kindness and giving? Here are simple ideas to kick off a new Valentine's Day tradition in your home.
