Valentine Day is the day of love where couples spend time together.

Valentine's Day, also called Saint Valentine's Day or the Feast of Saint Valentine, is an annual holiday celebrated on February 14.

From flower bouquets and balloons, to chocolate and candy, this is the day to show your love and affection.

I've never even been on a date, so when I say I love Valentine's Day, I'm not just saying it because I'm in love with someone.

Another thing I love about Valentine's Day is the spirit of community it promotes. If you happen to love animals, but she is indifferent this is not the gift for her. A rich life is so full of love from these places that it isn't any less vibrant without a significant other.

For couples, Valentine's Day always goes in one of two ways: a romantic success or a heartbreaking disaster. "We caught it back up, but you can only make so many at a time".

Yes, I have been single from the day I was born, up to today and probably tomorrow as well.

With all of the commercial hype, it can be easy for someone to get caught up in all of the hoopla, but people shouldn't just use this one day to celebrate the love they have for one another.
