Many people think that Valentine’s Day is just an excuse for the chocolate and flower markets to boom. A silly day created by Hallmark to increase card sales – and maybe, just maybe they’re right.
But how I see it is, we celebrate so many other things in life, why shouldn’t we celebrate love, in all of it’s gloriously gooey form?
