Have you noticed how Valentine’s Day is becoming much more commercialized and prominent this year? It seems that every store features an extensive Valentine’s display promoting not only the traditional I-Love-You kind of sentiments but also encouraging people to commemorate the day by sending greetings to friends.

This is more than the classroom valentine exchange. I have seen references to “Gal-entine’s Day” in several locations and heard of renaming the holiday SAD: Singles Awareness Day. It seems that everyone wants in on the action.

As Valentine’s Day approaches on Wednesday, think of with whom you want to share your greetings. It is a great holiday to send someone a note just to thank them for the joy they have brought into your life. Whether it’s a gal-friend, guy-friend, single buddy or paramour, never pass up an opportunity to tell someone that they have made your world a better place.
