Awwwww!!! The month of love!!! It’s not that people don’t love their spouses, girlfriends and boyfriends all year long but February is a month that feels like love is definitely in the air, peeps want to go the extra mile to make it special day for loved ones and so on.
Now who gains the most during these times, it’s not the girl/lady or woman who gets the most gifts from their spouses NO!!! It’s the gift shops, flower houses, joints, eateries, restaurants and all other places people go to in the name of VALENTINE. Asides the hotels and resorts that have special packages for lovers the weekend before Val, some travel and tour companies have round- trips to Dubai with hotel accommodation in a 5, 4 and 3 star hotel for the weekend (wow).
