Some despise it, but I’d argue Valentine’s Day is actually the best holiday on the calendar. Sure, many think it is a made-up holiday designed to make florists, stores and restaurants money. One that makes sweet singles feel sad and lonely.
But at its core, Valentine’s Day is all about l-0-v-e. So why not go all out in the name of love in all its shapes and sizes?
The historical origin of Valentine’s Day seems to be a bit murky in the archives, but what started as a day of romance for a special lover has evolved into a day filled with bright colors, delicious treats, sweet smelling blooms. And the opportunity to tell those in your life they are loved.
