Today's Kindness #272: February 10, 2023
Valentismas is celebrated every year on February 10. A portmanteau of Christmas and Valentine's Day, the day is observed on a day between the two occasions. Valentismas is supposed to be a stress-free day when families and friends get together to celebrate their love. Since it's only a few weeks after Christmas, the festive spirit is still in the air and everyone is getting ready for the Valentine's Day celebration. This is the perfect day to look back on the wonderful time of Christmas and participate in the season of love. Soak in the love of Valentismas with those closest to you.
