An Ode to Valentines Day: A Master Post

HAPPY VALENTINES DAY!♥

We LOVE Valentines Day, and by this I don’t mean just sort of in a halfhearted sort of way. I mean that we LOVE it (caps for emphasis).  So inorder to celebrate here is a post that was originally supposed to be an average, everyday, normal length post, but somehow mutated into this enormous monster.

red valentine heart

First up is this lovely short film which is simply adorable. My favorite Uncle showed it to me, and I pretty much became obsessed with it. He’s pretty sure it is what inspired this lovely Disney Short.

…And here is a video made by Post Secret (which we have both been obsessed with for years) that has a bunch of lovely Valentines Day secrets (P.S. Sorry if the eye one creeps you out. It creeped me out a bit).

And now here is a relatively short list of some Romantic Comedies that you can watch on Valentines Day.

VALENTINES DAY MOVIES

  • Sleepless in Seattle– You can’t go wrong with a little Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks. Actually I take that back. One time I watched Joe Verses The Volcano, and apparently you can go wrong. This one came out ok though. In addition to Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks it also features one of my favorite US cities, precocious children, and the Empire State Building on Valentines Day.
  • Valentines Day I’m not really sold on this movie, but I’m giving it a free pass because of it’s title. Also it’s a really great concept. Sort of a Valentines version of Love Actually with a bunch of different interconnected couples, and a lot of big names in the cast. Love Actually is way better though so if you don’t mind the sort of Christmas theme than I totally put myself behind that option.
  • You’ve Got Mail– Another Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks film. I actually really dislike Tom Hanks, but I make an exception for these two movies. I have always really liked this film. If you are into older films you could watch the original version titled ‘Shop Around The Corner’
  • He’s Just Not That Into You– This movie is hilarious, and it also features lots of different types of loosely interconnected couples. Fun Fact this movie is actually based off of a self help book of the same title. It is also one of the few things that Jennifer Anniston has done since Friends that I actually liked.
  • While You Were Sleeping– I love this movie. I think Kelli might hate this movie, but I can’t remember why. Either way I’m a sucker for any awkward Saundra Bullock Romantic Comedy, and I find this one to be particularly enjoyable.

Next is an exhaustive collection of Valentines Day/Love themed playlists. Alternative Titles: If There Isn’t a Playlist Below With Your Current Love Situation I’ll Be Surprised; I Like Themed Playlists Too Much, and Have No Life; or I Listen to a Lot of Embarrassing Music (your choice).
