That special someone

Show your valentine that you care with everyday gestures — it’s the secret to lasting love

Love is in the air on Valentine's Day. Children look forward to the exchange of cards and candy at school. Who doesn't remember some of the excited whispers about the message from that special someone, even if on one of those mass produced punch-out cards from the boxed sets. Family and special friends are recognized, usually with a card or box of candy. Spouses or those in a romantic relationship may also enjoy a bouquet of flowers and a special dinner. No one pretends that Valentine's Day is not also a big commercial venture, which is humorously evident in advertisements and stores with people often frantically looking for something at the last minute. Even so, the effort and act of giving is a symbol of affection to let loved ones know they are important.
