In Mexico, February is dedicated to Friendship with the 14th, Saint Valentine’s Day, at the center of it all in the middle of the month. Hearts are, next to flowers and candy, perhaps the most gifted present. The great thing about hearts is they work for coworkers as well as lovers and everybody on your list with whom you want to celebrate love and friendship. Marcia has heart earrings and pendants in various materials; David and Elizabeth have them in sterling silver and gold. Beach Booty has hearts of glass to hang in a window in many brilliant colors. They make beautiful necklaces as well, just don’t let anyone hug you too hard!
