Love is in the Air ...or, Maybe Not

Postmarks for Those in Love and Those Who Aren't

WASHINGTON , Jan. 30, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Love is in the air. Or, is it? The U.S. Postal Service is recognizing Valentine's Day this year by giving those madly in love a way to add an extra "I love you" to their greeting card envelopes and giving those who aren't in a heart-shaped relationship, a way to express their feelings in a, well, civilized manner.

For those wanting to add an extra sentiment to their greeting cards, they can simply address the card to that special person, affix a First-Class Mail postage stamp and put it into a larger envelope, also with postage, address it to VALENTINE'S DAY POSTMARK, POSTMASTER, and then add any of the locations listed below to get that town's postmark:
