Valentine’s Day, whether you’re in love or not, can be celebrated by all!

When I was younger, I loved this holiday! My dad would bring home roses for my mom, and the children would receive goody bags with red gummy candies and heart shaped boxes with chocolates in them. At school we had a Valentine’s tea party and exchanged Valentine’s Day cards with classmates. It was the best!

In my teenage years, my girlfriends and I celebrated “Galentine’s Day” It was a fun and silly way to celebrate being single. We’d treat ourselves to sugary snacks and binge watch chick flicks (Pride and Prejudice was a classic ;).

Don’t get too caught up in the mushiness of the holiday! It’s a great day to celebrate the friendships and loved ones in your life! In Latin America it’s even called día del amor y la amistad (day of love and friendship)!

Who can you help feel loved?
