Valentine's day, 14th February, is a shimmering pink day full of love. Many people buy flowers and other gifts for their loved ones. But there are other ways to love-bomb.
In December RFSL got an unpleasant surprise. Someone had placed a life-sized doll, stabbed with a knife, on the stairs to the group's rooms. But then some people put up heart stickers to show their support for the group.
On Valentine 's day hearts can be seen everywhere. The day is called after St Valentine, and has been celebrated in the Roman Catholic church since the end of the fifth century. It was not until much later, in the Middle Ages, that the day began to be associated with love and romance.
