Fun Facts about Valentine's Day

My brother goes to school in San Antonio, and I only get to see him in special occasions, or during the big holidays. That's not fair, I miss my brother, I want to see him as much as possible. But once you go in the airline website or at the airport, the tickets are extremely expensive!
