Valentine’s Day

            Every February 14, across the United States and in other places around the world, candy, flowers and gifts are exchanged between loved ones, all in the name of St. Valentine.  It is commonly shortened to Valentine's Day. Modern Valentine's Day symbols include the heart-shaped outline, doves, and the figure of the winged Cupid. Today, Valentine’s Day has became one of the most celebrated holidays in the United States.  Statistically, 25% of all greeting cards purchased are Valentine’s Day related.  There is a spike in sales during this holiday because flowers, chocolate, and gifts are the gifts chosen.  Overall, Valentine’s Day is a day to express your love towards your significant other.  It’s a magnificent holiday, well, for the taken of course.
