No. 1: Falling for the commercialization

Around Valentine's Day there are two groups that stand to make a lot of money -- greeting card companies and chocolate companies.

It's a beautiful relationship between these companies and last-minute panic shoppers.

It's true that cards can be expensive. You might even think they're a waste of time to pick out and write in them -- but to the person who receives it, it means a lot.

Take the commercialization out of Valentine's Day and flash back to elementary school when you made your own Valentine's Day cards out of pink and red construction paper and a paper doily. It really doesn't matter what it says -- it really is the thought that counts.

Single? Give in. Find your favorite candy and treat yourself. Just be happy you're not dealing with the games that Valentine's Day can bring forth.
