Loving 80’s Hits For Your Valentine: Valentine’s Day Nostalgia

By Jenna Dreisenstock

Valentine’s Day – it’s one of those holidays that people either adore, or despise. It could be anything from the thought of a lovely candlelit romance with a significant other – the sadness that comes with the pressure society places on us to be in a relationship if we are single; or perhaps just the general apathy when it comes to examining a consumer orientated holiday forged by corporations as a clever marketing scheme to make money.
