February is the month of love. It’s a time to spend with your family and friends, or maybe you get to spend it with someone special. Valentine’s Day just passed, but every day is an opportunity to show love to those around you.
If you are lucky enough to have that special someone, make sure you let them know that they are appreciated. One way you can do this is by getting them some candy and chocolate. Everyone loves to have something sweet to eat and if you think it’s a little expensive, Vendela Norris(10) says, “Discounted chocolate the day after Valentine’s Day is the way to go.” Who says you have to celebrate exactly on Valentine’s Day?
Another option is taking your significant other out to eat. There are many places in Louisville that offer great deals. Alyssa Clark(11) says, “Chocolate is okay, but what really is the best is the
Chick-fil-a heart shaped chicken nugget box because it’s a romantic excuse to eat thirty chicken nuggets.” If you want to go to a sit down place, Texas Roadhouse has great prices. The average meal for two people is around thirty dollars. This doesn’t include the free peanuts and the delicious rolls.
You can also get them a stuffed teddy bear or maybe even write them a note. Clark states, “A note is really sweet because it’s from the heart and I can keep it forever.”
If this season of love, you don’t have someone to spend it with, there are still plenty of things you can do. Elliott Davis (10) says some of the things she did on Valentine’s Day was to “eat some ice cream, play video games, and watch netflix. I do that pretty much everyday, but that doesn’t change how much fun it is to me.” If you don’t want to spend it alone, you can always spend it with friends. Hannah Bodine (11) says that this February, she “might not be spending it with someone special but I love that it’s a day to appreciate the people I love. I’ll probably spend it with friends and family.”
Valentine’s Day is a day that represents love, but you can still show love and appreciation every day of the year.
