It is an important traditional festival in Western countries where people prepare chocolates, greeting cards and flowers. St.Valentine’s Day is the time for expressing one’s love and for making a proposal of marriage to one’s beloved. Today, St. Valentine’s Day has become popular throughout the world so people are very familiar with the festival.

Although just recently I discovered the significant correlation between my life and trains. I can remember my mother decorating our home for every special occasion and holidays, especially the Christmas holiday. The aroma of apples and cinnamon engulfed the majority of the rooms in our home, but when I walked near the kitchen, the smell of my mother’s delicious cooking would appear.
