While some may question the commercialism behind the holiday (in fact, 82 per cent of Canadians say it's "just a commercial enterprise") there's no doubt that Valentine's Day can still be an opportunity to show your loved ones you care. You can celebrate Valentine's Day with your friends or even yourself.
