Hayden Godfrey of Smithfield, Utah spent $450 this Valentines day to buy 900 carnations, one for each girl in his school. He really believes that on Valentine's Day, every lady deserves a flower. This year he made sure no one felt excluded. He told Mashable , "If it was up to me, Valentine's wouldn't be a day about couples, but a day about loving your fellow human beings."
His Facebook post with pictures of the flowers has been getting a lot of thank you messages and he clearly brightened a lot of people's day.
This commercial features all kinds of families and reminds us that Valentine's Day can be about celebrating family love too.
It has candid video of different kinds of people, some adopted, some LGBT coming out to their parents and finding acceptance. All of them lucky enough to be surrounded by people who love them. Who knew graham crackers could be so touching? Just don't watch this in public, it might make you cry.
Not us, though. We're fine over here, it's just really dusty.
Can you think of a more perfect gift for Valentine's Day than a bouquet of roses? Doritos did.
Not everyone can just go out and buy a bouquet of roses made out of flavored corn chips so they also included a way to make one yourself. It seems like it involves a lot of glue...
Then, when you've charmed them with your perfect gift, it is customary to bring your Valentine to a fancy dinner. If you really want to outdo yourself this year, one KFC is doing a trial run of fancy table service for Valentines Day. According to Metro News, the Fishergate branch of KFC is the site where two lovebirds met and continue to have date night every week so far in their 50 year marriage. Pretty romantic. The date will include linen napkins and a soft drink sommelier to suggest the perfect soda pairing.

Norwood Thomas met Joyce Morris in England during World War II and took every chance they had to be together. Unfortunately, Thomas was sent home to America abruptly when the war was over. They still sent letters, and he even asked Morris to marry him but after some misunderstanding, they lost touch.
70 years later, Morris asked her son to help her look up her old flame and she found him in an article about a D-Day Veteran who just crossed skydiving off his bucket list.
She asked her son to help her contact him and soon enough they were reconnecting over Skype.
In packages that range from "pretty nice of you" to extravagant, this company will send your (soon to be ex) lover a care package along with a video of you breaking up with them.
It's probably not the kind of gift most people are expecting for Valentines day but at least it's better than a text message.
In Ghostbusters II a psychic named Elaine warned that the end of the world will be on February 14th, 2016. She assures us that the facts are accurate. After all they were obtained from a reputable alien source in a room at the Holiday Inn.
Of course we realize it's just a movie, but what if her prediction is true! It wouldn't be the first time that a movie foretold the future. We have hoverboards now, don't we?
Although, that didn't really turn out like we expected.
Maybe the world will be fine after all.
It's almost February 14th so get ready for the flood of dating advice! Twitter user @YaBoiSelfie decided to kick things off with what turned out to be a controversial hashtag #HowToKeepHer2016. As with almost anything on the internet, the hashtag was met with jokes, sexism, outrage and a few really earnest people who were just trying to answer a question.
The most recent exciting addition to the Warner Bros. Studio Tour London calendar is a three course Valentine's Day meal plated and served within Hogwarts Great Hall, which is also set to include a hearty supply of Butterbeer, a tour of the studio, and a free wand.
Perhaps the biggest catch here is this meal's about to wipe out your account at Gringotts Wizarding Bank.
But hey, you could always hit up Harry Potter for a friendly loan, right?
No really though, the whole show costs £247.50 ($357) per person, or £495 ($714) for two people.
