Valentine´s Day



Angelina Edson, Reporter

Valentine’s Day is February 14th. Every year on this day people celebrate this day by spreading love and affection towards loved ones. Valentine’s Day is traditionally made up of romance, roses, and other sweet things and meant to express love. Show some love by sending someone a small sentimental gift such as chocolate, flowers, or stuffed animals. Small gifts are really meaningful because you are showing someone that you care. You do not have to spend a ton of money on gifts. You can also spread love by just saying Happy Valentines day.
