Red, pink, magenta: Those are the colors of Valentine's Day. At school on Valentine's Day we always make boxes for the party. Then we go around passing out mouthwatering, delicious candies. I adore Valentine's Day mostly because of the candy, but also because of all the love and kindness that goes around.

It's the best: Valentine's Day is fun because you get to eat all types of candy, but not a lot because you could get cavities. On Valentine's Day I always hope for banana Laffy Taffy because that is my favorite candy. At school you have to give everybody in your class a candy bag and a card. That's why Valentine's day is the best.
