Forty-five years from now
Today 192 million Valentine’s Day cards will trade hands according to Hallmark. That figure does not include pre-packaged Valentine's for children's classroom exchanges.
Flowers, candy, cards, and other gifts, a commercial celebration of love. No one is sure who St. Valentine was, could have been any of three ancient fellows. Visit the History Channel for a brief and interesting history of Valentine's Day.
I'm a bit of a romantic, but I've never had much interest in Valentine's Day or Hallmark's version of love. A relationship is a yearlong, no, lifelong endeavor. Like life itself, love has it's ups and downs. It's all in what you make it. Make it special and you'll be walkin' on the moon more often than not.
