LOVE, VALENTINES, AND COVID
By Timber Giles

There are many things that people think of when they hear the word love.

One big thing is Valentine's Day. They do things like go on dinner dates, dance, watch the sunset, and get gifts like chocolate, hearts, flowers, and more.

On this day people get gifts and spend time with the person they love. (Although single people lay in bed all day and cry or throw things at people on dates!)

Let's just say Valentine's Day is a big thing to many, many people. 

This year is going to be different from all the other years. Couples want to go to a restaurant, or go to a dance, or just go in public. They can't do the things they usually do, due to Covid-19 restrictions.

This relates to wearing masks, closing public places, social distancing, and many other things. So they just have to make the best out of a bad situation. 

Our school does Valentine's Tea, and we can't do it exactly like we did the past years. We have to wear masks and not have any or very little slow dances. We also can't dance in big groups, mostly line dances.

Love is a big thing to people so let's say COVID has changed a lot about it this year.
