February 14 is also known as Valentine's Day. It could be the best day of the year or the worst day of the year. If you are in a relationship it could be a day that you love. If you are single it could be a dreaded day that you can't wait to be over.

Valentine's Day started all the way back in Europe by St. Valentine himself. He believed in love and there was an emperor who didn't. The emperor believed that single men made better soldiers than they did husbands. Valentine knew the consequences of his actions so he continued to marry people in secret. When the emperor found out Valentine was put to death but Valentine's Day itself lived on.

People soon began exchanging love letters to the ones they love. Then they started doing nice things like buying flowers and exchanging gifts. There were even some movies based on the holiday itself. Now Valentine's Day is considered to be the most overpriced day of the year.

Valentine's Day got more popular as time went on. You shouldn't wait one day a year to tell someone you love them or show you care. If you have someone who means a lot to you you should show them everyday. Make them feel appreciated and let them know how you feel.
