Love is in the air at Whitnall High School as students talk about their Valentine’s Day celebrations.
Whether it’s dinner and a movie with a boyfriend, or staying home with the family, everyone is chatting about last night’s festivities and people outside high school are probably curious as to how high schoolers spent their holiday this year.
Gabbie Weis, a Whitnall senior, had basketball practice and a team dinner for the Falcons upcoming game Friday night at home against Whitnall’s rival, the Greenfield Hawks. Obviously, the game is more important to the girl’s basketball team then the special holiday.
To some like Daniel Lak, a Whitnall unior, “the holiday is a lot of money” but he still took his girlfriend to a fancy dinner at Olive Garden, which was a popular place of choice for the Valentine’s Day dinner among Whitnall students.
Whitnall senior, Sam Damijan, an employee at Olive Garden, spent her Valentine’s Day working the rush at this popular restaurant.
"We had about a two and a half hours wait for a majority of the night,” Damijan said. "Valentines Day is our busiest day of the year.”
Everyone’s night seemed full of excitement and love with or without a boyfriend or girlfriend to spend the holiday with. It may or may not be everyone’s favorite holiday, but everyone seemed to find a great way to celebrate Valentine’s Day.
