A celebration of love
VALENTINE’S Day is a great opportunity to show affection to those we love. On this special occasion, couples and friends exchange gifts which range from chocolates to flowers and cakes. Besides gifts, you can always show your gratitude to your loved ones by giving them a hug, a card or even a phone call. How about a call to your grandparents to say “I Love You”? Or you might want to make some cookies (with Mummy’s help, of course) for your best friend in school. After all, Valentine’s Day is all about spreading love and affection.
