One of the best ways to celebrate ‘Galentine’s’ is by dressing up with a best friend and going to dinner.

Valentine’s Day is approaching fast, and students at Eagle High are getting butterflies. Even if students aren’t in relationships, it is still one of the most popular holidays. When people think of this day, hearts, chocolate and flowers come to mind. It is a day filled with magic and love.  

“For Valentine’s Day this year, my boyfriend and I are going to dinner [and] exchanging gifts,” said senior Linnea Greco. “I think roses, teddy bears and quality time are the best gifts a girl can receive.” Some popular date ideas are going to Topgolf, a movie date and bowling.  

“My dad is getting me a puppy this year for my Valentine’s Day gift,” said senior Kate Mahoney. “I am super excited for this holiday because my mom always makes me yummy treats like chocolate-covered strawberries.” For those who are choosing not to spend the day with a romantic partner, it is just as fun to spend with family. Many seniors are soaking up these last few holidays at home before they leave in a few months.
