Why is Valentine's Day celebrated?

If you're sad about being alone on Valentines Day, just remember that nobody loves you on any other day of the year either.

Sami Wunder is a London-based dating and relationship expert.

Now, you know the story behind the celebration of this special day.

In 1537, England's King Henry VII officially declared February 14 the holiday of St. Valentine's Day.

Time to pull up your socks in the love department. For many men it's a time to panic and scramble to order last minute flowers, or if you're creative, to buy a special gift or plan an exciting evening for your special someone. Write it in the finest ink. It shifts you from a mindset of self-pity to one of empowerment quickly. Owning a pet can make children with chronic illnesses and disabilities feel better by stimulating physical activity, enhancing their overall attitude, and offering constant companionship. You can go to a spa or have a long bubble bath.

Love and happiness in your relationship shouldn't be based on what gifts you get each other. I would be a fool to let you get away.

Love birds yet another symbol of Valentine's Day as it has been said that they search for their mates on Valentine's Day.

Breakfast in bed is a luxury that most of has ever experienced.

St Valentine's crime was he continued to perform marriage ceremonies in secret after some unions were outlawed to encourage men to join the army. Yes, it's the day when Cupid is mysteriously at work and those things often happen.

Everyday life is busy. Then in 1861, British chocolate maker Richard Cadbury (of Cadbury creme egg fame) decided to make the first heart-shaped box to display his product, forever cementing the relationship between chocolate and Valentine's Day. Thirty percent say they'll have dinner out, and just six percent will enjoy a movie. They won't have to feel left out.

The National Weather Service also has issued a blizzard warning for all of Long Island until 6 p.m. There will be many impacts on Southern New England with this complex and powerful storm system.

I wish more writers told us about this kind of love - the long-term kind.

Giving time and attention to your loved one is the best way to make them happy.

Smartwatches are becoming important gadgets in human like mobile phones. Surprise your fiancé or fiancée with a nice scrapbook of your memories together, remind him or her of your special moments of fun, laughter and love - jumpstart the future life together.

Valentine Day is just about to come and obviously, you need some special words and lines full of love on the occasion, for your dearest ones. I'm happiest when I am with you.

How dearly I love you.

So what images are people using to depict love in 2017?

Valentine's Day is here with us, and we know most of you, especially the guys, are probably struggling with what to get her.

Past year over half of us (55%) celebrated Valentine's Day and spent nearly $20 billion. In return, a month later men reciprocate with gifts for women on White Day.
