Valentine's Day is a holiday recognized and celebrated worldwide,
and in France it is called La Saint-Valentin. Ever wonder why?
Because "Saint Valentin" is masculine, one would expect the article associated with
the phrase to be "le". In actuality, the French are describing the holiday as "la fête de Saint Valentin",
therefore when we refer to the day of February 14th, we use the article “la”.
So, how will you be celebrating La Saint-Valentin?
