February Weekend Events: Happy Valentine’s Day! Share some LOVE! 02/09-12

Happy Valentine’s Day! Also known as “Cupid’s Day“, Valentine’s is one of the most beloved day of the year. It is traditionally known as the day when lovers express their love for each other by presenting flowers, offering chocolates and sweets, and sending greeting cards, known as “Valentines“.

Valentine’s Day can also be a day where love is shown to family, friends, co-workers, and even passers-by…and it doesn’t even have to cost a single penny! That’s right, just giving a smile, lending a hand to someone in need, doing a good deed for a person, and then them passing it along, those are acts of love and kindness which can be done without any money.

What a wonderful gift we have as human beings to just give of ourselves and be able to brighten someone’s day. Let’s start today and make a difference! What are you going to do today to make a difference? Tell us, we would love to hear!
