But for some, it can also be a bitter day.
As hearts, flowers, and champagne overrun the majority of restaurants, Americans will spend an estimated $3.5 billion on a Valentine's night out. Most of it at upscale restaurants with fancy, heartfelt menus.
But one Washington state restaurant is breaking the heart-shaped mold, and celebrating "Anti-Valentine's Day".
They will cook up the most tasty, yet least romantic dishes they could think of, including fried veal sweetbreads-- also known as glands of a calf.
Then you can wash it down with a bitter cocktail of grapefruit beer and Malort, a wormwood liqueur.
What do you think about the day of love? Will you be celebrating "Anti-Valentine's Day" or soaking in the romance?
