To many couples, Valentine's Day is another day to celebrate the love they have for each other. People around the world experience heartbreaks, the idea of Valentine's Day is unimportant to them. The Qixi Festival is a celebration of love that is based on the love story between a weaver girl and a cowherd. Instead, whether you are in a relationship, you should use Valentine's Day to celebrate self empowerment.

How will you be celebrating the coveted day for happy couples? Whether it's an anniversary, a holiday, or even an upcoming event, take the time to step back, examine what's happening right before your eyes, and make decisions based on what's right for you. Love is alive with possibility and in that limbo we wait to experience the spark that romance is known for. Even better, they won't break the bank because they are easily one of the most affordable.

If you don't have anyone in mind, simply love yourself. A bunch of chocolate balls is sure to make a hearty love confession to sweetheart. The American culture is so passionate and over-the-top about its holidays that all I've been thinking about for the last two weeks was Valentine's Day.

In TV and film, being single on Valentine's Day is portrayed as a miserable experience, during which single people eat tubs of ice cream in pajamas and cry over a romantic movie. Hand out little Valentine's Day cards or make homemade gifts and treats and pass them out to your classmates and friends. However, you want to find gifts that personify who she is, and what she loves.

Valentine's Day is today, February 14, and we've rounded up some fast facts about the day that may surprise you.

Bill And Melinda Gates Are Not Happy About Trump's Budget Proposal
"Parents have fewer children when they're confident those children will survive into adulthood", Melinda wrote. It's not fair that we have so much wealth when billions of others have so little.

Spending later Valentine's Days alone also showed me that it's a day to celebrate more than just romantic love.

Richard Cadbury produced the first box of chocolates for this holiday in the late 1800s. So, go volunteer at your local animal shelter or soup kitchen and spread the love, because what you give is what you get.

Its Valentines Day tomorrow and we know some romantic people have already started wrapping that special gift for their special one.

The only thing that needs to separate Valentine's Day from any other day is how you choose to spend it-whether it's with your significant other, with your friends or by yourself.

- Every Valentine's Day, the Italian city of Verona, where Shakespeare's lovers Romeo and Juliet lived, receives about 1,000 letters addressed to Juliet.
