How much do you know about the Holiday of LOVE?  Well, let's just see.  Study and then answer the questions listed below.  Please send me your answers through PM.  The Cherry with the most correct answers will get 500 POINTS!  If there is more than one Cherry with the correct answers (or most correct answers), I will draw one winner from that group.  Partisprinks for everyone who tries! You have until 11:59 PM, February 15, to enter!  Good luck!

I can't believe I am just seeing these now. I love trivia and these are really great questions! (BTW, any other HQ Trivia fans here mourning the loss of our favorite AP-based game show? I'm going to miss Matt the most!)
