Valentineâ€™s Day or â€œAraw ng mgaPusoâ€ in the vernacular is celebrated worldwide annually on February 14.
Valentineâ€™s Day is associated with romantic and evolved into an occasion in which lovers expressed their love for each other by sending flowers, confectionery, or greeting cards, known as â€œValentineâ€™s card.â€
Valentineâ€™s Day symbols that are used today include hearts, doves, and cupid. This yearâ€™s Valentineâ€™s stamps featured the Filipino king and queen of hearts in national costumes to imbibe the Filipiniana way of celebrating the â€œAraw ng mgaPusoâ€ in our country.
As what the artistâ€™s concept says, â€œThe king is giving his heart to his queen and in return the queen gives her words of endearment as an expression of her love to her kingâ€.
