“When i was 12, my mother always gave me Valentine candy because you know it's my mother. One day she was like, I don't know what to get you because I'm hard to buy gifts for sometimes so she just gave me money and let me go into CVS to get the discounted Valentine's Day candy.” - Chrystal Sheehan

"At this point in my life, I've been married for over 32 years. So Valentine's Day, for me and my wife, is kinda just another day. When you work in the media for so long, you realize that it's a holiday created by Hallmark to sell cards and flowers! So my opinion is: it's for young people, and they should go out and enjoy it. Also... I wish those lil' heart candies would come back." - Ralph Riello

“Valentine’s Day doesn’t have to be about having a significant other it can be about spending time with your family and friends. Valentine’s Day is about spreading your love and appreciating the good people in your life, including yourself. Valentine’s Day is all about treating yourself, your friends, and your family. “ - Victoria Baliga
