Happy Valentine’s Day Celebration Text Over Red Duotone Bokeh Lights Background

Many people think that Valentine’s Day is all about candy, others think it’s about having someone to spend it with. The truth is, it’s neither. It’s about taking time to appreciate the loved ones in your life.

Valentine’s Day is a day that many people look forward to, and everyone has their own way of celebrating this unique holiday.

Many people see Valentine’s Day as a special day to express one’s love for another. Every year on 14 February, people celebrate this holiday by sending messages, flowers, cards, and candy to their loved ones.

Seeing as everyone interprets the holiday differently, we asked fellow HMS students and staff what they think the history of Valentine’s Day is, and how they like to celebrate it.

“The history of Valentine’s Day is about love,” said Manny Rosales.

When we asked Shelby Page, she responded, “I think Valentine’s Day was a Greek legend, and there was a Greek god named Eros,” 

Our office staff Ms. Crystal said, “It’s a day to appreciate your significant other.”

“It’s for your loved one,”  said Carolina Servin.

Ines Carlin agreed and said, “When you celebrate your loved ones that you have in your life.”

Mrs. Lowell, our library teacher at HMS doesn’t celebrate Valentine’s Day. She doesn’t like to make a big deal out of that day.

“I think Hallmark made the holiday up to make more movies,” she said.

Valentine’s Day is a day to celebrate with your loved ones and let them know that you care. Whether that’s by going out to dinner or exchanging gifts, the most important thing is to share the love.
