i bought her flowers and a card
I have celebrated Valentineâ€™s Day once. I do not remember which year it was but I had just finished university. I bought her flowers with a card and later took her to Blue Africa where we spent the evening.

i celebrate valentines everyday
I do not remember what I did for her on that first Valentineâ€™s but I do not have to wait for a particular day to show her love. I celebrate Valentineâ€™s every day.Â

we had dinner at home
We were newlyweds. My hubby and I agreed that everyday should be Valentineâ€™s Day. This was of course dripping with sarcasm because it is such a cheesy thing to say! We did have a nice dinner at home and later in the evening, he took me out.

We bought each other flowers, exchanged cards
I first heard of Valentineâ€™s when I was 19 years at Kingâ€™s College Budo. I got a surprise card from a friend, who was studying at Makerere University. Later, when I got married, my husband, and I continued to celebrate Valentineâ€™s Day. On my first Valentineâ€™s with my late husband, we bought each other flowers and exchanged cards. Later, we went out for dinner. Actually, Valentineâ€™s Day always brings back memories of my husband.

i took her to Zanzibar
My first Valentineâ€™s was in 1982. I took her to Zanzibar to a hotel, where we had our dinner and later we went out to the theatre and watched a romantic movie. Valentineâ€™s Day should be made memorable with new innovations. A trip to explore a foreign city, was a big surprise to her. She remembered it long after Valentineâ€™s Day.

i spent it with my spouse
It was in 2001 and I had a show that day so we were together with my spouse.Â I bought her a card and flowers, which I gave to her in the morning before going to Entebbe Resort Beach, where we had lunch. From Entebbe, we went to Lugogo, where I was going to perform and after the show, we went to Club Silk.
We celebrate love everyday
I donâ€™t remember celebrating Valentineâ€™s. My sweetheart and I usually take it as an ordinary day. We celebrate love almost everyday. We cherish the most important things that mean the most to each of us; our love and children.

he made dinner for me
My sweetheart and I have a tradition of making Valentineâ€™s Day dinner for each other. On our first Valentineâ€™s, we set the table with roses and candles. We did not have children. He made me a two course meal. It was a pleasant surprise. We also exchanged gifts; small but thoughtful. In the evening, he took me to watch my favourite band, Afrigo.

I WAS TOO BROKE TO TAKE HER OUT FOR DINNER
I first celebrated Valentineâ€™s in America. What I remember was that I was so broke, I could not afford to take her out for dinner. But I tried my best to make her happy. I had to buy cooked food and later invited her to my place for dinner. I bought her flowers and a card, which I gave her when she came over to my place.
