A day of love and romance in the afternoon.

Soaps.com hopes everyone had a very special Valentine’s Day with the ones they love. Even for those singles out there, we hope you took some time to pamper yourself by simply relaxing for a bit during the holiday. The day of love, also referred to as Saint Valentine’s Day as well as the Feast of Saint Valentine, began as a day of feast for the Western Christians to honor two early saints named Valentinus. Throughout the years, while February 14 has been spent by many honoring those we love, the celebration has become more commercialized, leading to an overabundance of spending on chocolates, roses, dinners and various other gift ideas. Still, any chance to say, “I love you,” is a good idea. Happy Valentine’s Day!
