Valentine’s Day affects us all. Whether we’re making plans for
that special someone or just trying to dodge the massive V-Day displays in the
malls and grocery stores, it has an impact. Although many would argue that we
shouldn’t have a day dedicated to love, love will be on all of our minds
tomorrow, whether we’re single, dating around or one-half of a whole. So
this year the CT strives to aid you all in surviving this often hectic and emotionally
charged day. We ventured out to get your opinions, crunched the numbers and have
compiled a few handy lists and suggestions to get you through the day. Enjoy and
have a great Valentine’s Day from The Commonwealth Times.
