Why I don’t celebrate Valentine’s Day

posted by Homeshuling

I’m a holiday kind of gal. I really enjoy excuses to celebrate special days, especially when the celebrations involve preparing food. But Valentine’s Day? I’m just not that into it. There’s been some shakla v’tarya amongst the Jewish mommy bloggers […]
