Valentine’s Day: the day to appreciate the ones you love and to show how much your special someone means to you.
About 1 billion Valentine’s Day cards are exchanged each year. This makes it the second largest seasonal card sending time of the year and includes love letters, flowers, and the occasional clever Valentine’s Day gift. Statistics also show that 73 percent of people who buy flowers for Valentine’s Day are men, while 27 percent are women.
Dating in high school around Valentine’s Day can be both good and bad, at least for senior Teresa Mullin.
“[The holiday is good] because you have the freedom to do whatever you want, but it’s bad because there is nobody there for you on a day meant for love.”
Mullin says she is currently single and said if she could spend the holiday with anyone, she would pick Harry Styles.
Those that had dates for Valentine’s Day were left with the decision over what to buy each other. Some go all out, while others believe the simple gestures mean the most.
Mullin said “chocolate and a rose” is what she would want if she had a date.
