Ah, Valentine’s day, the day of love… (Part 1)

Nowadays all true sentimentalists, from hard-core prodigals to casual window shoppers, must go to great lengths to avoid the thousands of varieties of mass-produced Valentine’s cards, candles and assorted knick-knacks which are displayed along the routes of their once-dreamy rambles.
