Some people say that this celebration was established by big department stores to improve the sales figures at this time of year when people are still suffering the shortage of money after the big expenses of the Christmas period. For others, it is a fabulous time to celebrate love and show their feelings in the form of cards or gifts. What cannot be denied is that many businesses make a fortune by selling cards, chocolates, romantic dinners and even diamonds. In this consumer society any idea to make you spend your money and keep the economy going is welcome. However, do we really need to have a day to show our love? Can your love be meassured by the amount of money you spend in a gift?

In the next quiz you can check how much you know about St Valentine's Day. Have a go and enjoy yourself!
