Love is in the air! Valentine's is back. This time of the year, people across the U.S. celebrate love. We show appreciation for those close to us by going out to dinner, buying heart-shaped/gifts, giving candy, and sending roses. This holiday evolved from remembering the death sentence of an Italian Catholic priest called Valentine.
