Valentine’s Day, originally a commemoration of Saint Valentine’s martyr on February 14, 269, is considered National Love Day. Couples, families, and friends express their love to one another. Many people will say, “I love you” by giving gifts, cards, flowers, or chocolate. However, the recipient of this gift may not hear “I love you” because it was not expressed in their love language.
