Xoxo love hearts and kisses.

Seems to be the only “holiday” around this time of the year. Feb. 14, known to most as Valentine’s Day, is a man-made holiday loved and hated by many.

When people are asked about the holiday, the reaction is always unexpected.

“When I hear Valentine’s Day I think of presents but I’ll probably sit in the house going out is overrated,” Saralyn Taylor, a sophomore biology major, said.

Freshman Alyssa Jankowoski said she and her boyfriend will be going out. Valetine’s Day makes her bubbly.

According to, there are about 150 million Valentine’s Day cards bought yearly, making Valentine’s Day the second most popular card-sending holiday after Christmas.

The very first Valentines day poem was written in 1415 by Charles duke to his wife. Century’s later, the holiday has then been celebrated by lovers, friends and colleagues around the world.

“I’m going to the movies with friends. I wish I wasn’t a lonely soul but the holiday is overrated” freshman Melissa Hefferan said.

Although it is thought of as being a happy day, there are still about 44 percent of Americans who will be single on Valentine’s Day, according to statisticbrain.

“I’ve never celebrated it. I feels like “it is mainly for couples and I never had a bae,” freshman Isabella romani biology major said.
