If you're tired of the hype associated with Valentine's Day, consider redefining it as a family holiday instead of a couples' event.
For example, make it a celebration of your love and appreciation for those around you -- including your kids and your closest friends. This kind of re-framing can change not only what the holiday means to you, but also how it feels.
