It was just as much fun (and sometimes painful!) to give those Valentine’s Day cards as it was to receive them…

Let’s think back to when you were 8 years old and had no fear during Valentine’s Day. Would you make a hand-written card, and spend time choosing the perfect Valentine’s Day message? Or would you do something bold and give them flowers, chocolates, or a teddy bear?
