- February 14, observed in honor of St. Valentine as a day for the exchange of valentines and other tokens of affection.
On Gaia Online, Valentine's Day (also known as Vday2K) was introduced in 2006 of February. A typical Valentine's Day event on Gaia involves sending cards to fellow Gaians by use of the Private Message feature, the release of related items and participating in the sites main event.
- During the month of February, Gaia begins to hype-up the coming events by releasing heart and Valentine themed items.
- Event related NPCs may make their presence known by posting in various forums, contacting Gaians through private messages, or making announcements about why they are on the site.
- During the event, Gaians can send valentines to collect candy and then obtain items.
- Since Valentine's Day is so close to Gaia's Anniversary (February 18), it is not uncommon for these events to be combined as one event.
