Valentine's Day Common Core StoriesFebruary is just around the corner and, like many romantically inclined people, I am really looking forward to celebrating Valentine’s Day with our family! While Valentine’s Day started out as a day to celebrate “courtly love”, it is now celebrated as a day for love and friendship throughout much of the world. I hope that you are looking forward to the day as well.
