Valentine's Day

Valentine’s Day, also called Saint Valentine’s Day, is a holiday on February 14th celebrating love and friendship. Approximately 150 million Valentine's Day cards are exchanged annually, making Valentine's Day the second most popular card-sending holiday after Christmas. Since the early history literature, love has been a major contributor to many poems, plays, stories, and novels. Love is a particularly interesting subject because it seems simple but it is most complex with many possible variables, and it also ignites great passion.

Love - What is it? How do you find it in the 21st century? How is it commercialized?


What is love? - Brad Troeger

Let's Begin…

Is love a signal winding through your neural pathways? A cliché? A cult? Love is easy to compare but difficult to define, maybe because we’re fundamentally biased; we try to define love while falling in or out of it. And love feels differently to every person who feels it, but this subjective emotion has evolutionary explanations, too. Brad Troeger takes a shot at the definition of love.
