Lover’s Day

Lover’s Day is a holiday observed every April 23rd, giving everyone a chance to show their significant other just how much they love them.

It commemorates England’s patron saint, who supposedly killed a dragon and rescued a princess. Regardless of why this holiday was invented, it is a day that should help lovers keep the embers of their love burning.
