...we spent all of Christmas Eve and the majority of Christmas together (via Skype)

What a sweet story.
I am from California & also had Christmas Eve dinner via video chat with my long distance boyfriend & his mother in France.
They even put the laptop at my place setting!  Kiss
We opened gifts together & everything. Pretty cool!

Like I said, it was fun, but I was pretty shaky, beforehand. I had some Grand Marnier first, to no avail.
Were it not for the tenderness of my sweet filet mignon, I would have chickened out, altogether.

No...I actually did just miss my desserts. I had them for lunch!  Grin

OK, for all the guys bellyaching about the commercialism of Valentine's Day, this may be more up you alley...
I don't know if you need to belong to Facebook or not to see this, & you certainly don't have to join the "cause", but it's a nice idea  smiley.

Curiously, I don't even think about Valentine's Day. I planned to take my friend of nearly 40 years to dinner on Saturday (she asked me about Valentine's for some reason) and didn't realize that day is the 13th until hours later. We normally don't observe the 14th; we count the 15th as our day. Why? Because that's the day, all those years ago, we fell in love forever.

Same here. Me and my wife don't celebrate our wedding anniversary, but the day we met. You can get married anytime, but you met for the first time only once.

That's sweet, too!
Not trying to brag or anything, but we celebrate:
the first PM (from another forum) I ever sent him  Kiss,
the day we met on video chat , and
the day he arrived from France so we could meet in person

What can I say, he is French!

OK, you got me, and fast. I looked up the show, but still can't think of a thing to say.
You must still be seething over my last win, so you're giving me something impossible to respond to this time!  tongue
That's OK, though - if I lose to you, at least you're always tactful, and not condescending.  Wink
Even when the obvious happens to slip by me.

Either that, or it's just not my day  Grin .

You could try "Listen very carefully, I shall say this only once".

If she hasn't got a good singing voice how about "pass me the cheese"?

Just as commercial, but a different approach to Valentine day.. Valentine's day and White day in Japan

I think you can ignore the commercialism if you want to, you don't have to go buy expensive gifts, it should be about the sentiment..... Having said that, this year I am part of the single and (not so) depressed group  Wink
