Stories of Love on Valentine’s Day

by Feb 14, 2021

Happy Valentine’s Day!

A day devoted to love and letting people know that you care.

Where do you stand on the day of hearts and flowers?

Do you get giddy over the romance in the air, the sound of all those cheesy love songs and the chance for a special night on the town or cuddling by the fire with your significant other?

Or are you someone that decries the corniness of the day or its commercialism, standing firmly on the side of the argument that you don’t need a special day to express your feelings for those you love?

Or perhaps you fall somewhere in between, choosing to celebrate some of the traditions of the day?

Love is All Around

The love that’s all around me And so the feeling grows
It’s written on the wind. It’s everywhere I go.
So if you really love me – Come on and let it show

However – and with whomever – you celebrate, today is a day for love stories. If you feel the need for stories of love, here are some collections to get you in the right frame of mind. On Valentine’s Day or any day the mood for romance arises.

Grab your hankies, your comfort food, your glass of wine, your cozy blanket, your favourite person, your animal companions and/or anything else that helps you set the mood, and settle in for a good cry or laugh, whichever makes you happy.
