Modern-day Valentine’s Day is typically celebrated by children of North America with the passing out of Valentine’s notes to one’s grammar school classmates. Many teachers host arts-and-crafts themed projects leading up to Valentine’s Day. One school custom which has endured for generations is the making of a Valentine “mail box” out of an empty shoe box or tissue box. Of course, the box is meant to hold your stash of Valentine’s Day cards from classmates.

Adults celebrate Valentine’s Day by exchanging purchased or homemade cards or letters, going out to dinner together, or preparing a special dinner at home that consists of the loved one’s favorite foods. Heart-shaped boxes of chocolates continue to be a popular choice in Valentine’s Day gifts, though it is not unheard of for a special lady to receive a piece of jewelry on the Day of Love.
