Valentine’s Day is celebration of commitment
By Maxine Nielsen of Lake Park
Feb. 14, celebrated each year as St. Valentine’s Day, is quickly approaching.
It’s the day we express our love for classmates, family, special friends, and spouses.
We can choose to express this love with valentines, flowers, candy, jewelry, a special date night, phone call — whew!
