The day is the time to send little gifts to those you love. Flowers and candies are favourite presents which sweethearts send to each other. Valentine candies are packed in red heart-shaped boxes and sold for this one day.
Valentines are special greeting cards. Valentines that we know today first appeared in the 18th century, sweethearts used to spend hours making their own valentines with coloured paper, wild flowers, ribbon and lace.

I Just Called to Say I Love You (MIXED)
I just called to say I love you I just called to say how much I care I just called to say I love you And I mean it from the bottom of my heart No summer's high No warm July No harvest moon to light one tender August night No autumn breeze No falling leaves Not even time for birds to fly to southern skies I just called to say I love you I just called to say how much I care, I do I just called to say I love you And I mean it from the bottom of my heart
No Libra sun No Halloween No giving thanks to all the Christmas joy you bring But what it is, though old so new To fill your heart like no three words could ever do
No New Year's Day to celebrate No chocolate covered candy hearts to give away No first of spring No song to sing In fact here's just another ordinary day No April rain No flowers bloom No wedding Saturday within the month of June But what it is, is something true Made up of these three words that I must say to you
Let’s make paper hearts-valentines to present them to the dearest and nearest!
I love you more today
than I did yesterday.
But not half as
much as I will tomorrow.
