Valentines' Day is a day to show your love to those close to you. But what is love? These were the questions posed to some students at Wales Elementary School. While some looked forward to Valentines' Day for the extra candy connected to the holiday, they share thoughts on love.

"Love to me is caring about somebody with your heart and through your heart." - Gabrielle Koenig, fourth grade
"Love to me is not like giving someone presents or flowers but by actually showing them that you care for them and love them … probably with hugs and homemade cards instead of bought cards." - Eleni Tzougros, fifth grade

How does love feel?
"It feels really happy when you're in love 'cuz it feels like you're going to be with whoever you're in love with a lot." - Lexi Strickland, first grade
"Love feels like when you feel happy inside, you never feel upset you feel great and you always feel cheerful and you always want to be right by their side.

How do people show love?
"Love is when you really talk about someone a lot and when you give a lot of things to them." - Lexi Strickland, first grade
