Hello February – Happy Valentine’s Day!

Hello February!!! Happy Valentine’s Day to everyone! Although Valentine’s Day is not actually a public holiday, it is one of the most romantic days of the year. There are several stories about who Saint Valentine was but whatever the true story may be, love is a global phenomenon and Valentine’s Day is celebrated around the world in various ways. Valentines celebrations will transpire not only throughout the United States but also in other parts of the world on February 14th. The feast of St. Valentine in history is the celebration of love and affection. In the United States about 190 million Valentine’s Day cards are sent each year, not including the hundreds of millions of cards school children exchange.

Valentine’s Day is a major source of economic activity, with total expenditures in 2017 topping $18.2 billion in 2017, or over $136 per person. This is an increase from $108 per person in 2010.

cold winds,
biting chills, and
white snow fluffed hills

Presidents ‘Day is coming our way.
February, sweet and small, greatest month of all.”
