In honor of St. Valentine we've compiled recipes for kids to
celebrate Valentine's day on February 14th. It is a day to show
loved ones you care.
Chocolates, flowers, cards, balloons are all common Valentine's day
gifts. The holiday originated by someone who indeed was named St.
Valentine. After being imprisoned he sent notes signed, from your
Valentine to his love. He was also martyred on February 14th hence
why we celebrate on this particular day.
