Chocolates, stuffed animals, Valentine's Day cards, little candies, red and pink, all of these capture the holiday that shows people you love them. Are people still in touch with this holiday, however?
Yes. People are still celebrating Valentine's Day, especially when they have a significant other.
We asked seven people if they celebrated V-Day, and their answers were actually surprising.
Laura Jean, who celebrates, calls V-day Galantines day because she usually likes to spend it with her girl friends, and they dress up together to go out in a group to have fun.
Karina, shown at the left, loves to romanticize V-Day by doing special things like putting rose petals everywhere and spending quality time with her partner.
Laura said that Valentine’s Day should always be equal. Men should not feel overwhelmed by the need to go over the top. Likewise, women should not have so many expectations.
