Valentines 2k9 is an event that started on February 13th, 2009.
In the Valentine 2k9 event, Gaians can send Valentine messages to other Gaians. The messages functions like a Mad Lib and the Gaian is unable to see the message until he or she send the message to another Gaian. Gaians are also able to accept or reject Valentine messages. Gaians are also allowed to send Valentines to NPCs. However, some NPCs follow strict guidelines on accepting Valentines from Gaians. The reward for meeting the Valentine acceptance criteria rewards the Gaian a photo of the NPC they could put in their signature. However, there is actually an universal URL to the NPC photos and it is not required for the Gaian to have the photo item itself in order use the photo. NOTE: Gaians were not required to fill in the blanks in order to receive a Valentine reward from an NPC.
