Happy Love Day, all through the year.
Valentine's day is from the heart, he-->ear-->hear and -->ART. which I love.
I remember as a child, as early as Kindergarten, my Mom bought a package of designed red and white hearts from the Kress Store, and carefully wrote on each envelope and on the back of each Valentine card the person's name. When I taught first grade, later ran a home preschool, and later taught art in schools, all my students created cards to share in mail boxes; now there are e-newsletters.
