Happy Valentine's Day! Today we are doing something a little different to mark the occasion - we are celebrating Valentina's Day in honour of San Marino's most active Eurovision representative!

Valentina Monetta just can't get enough of the Eurovision Song Contest. Not happy the representing San Marino for three years in a row, she's returned to the contest in 2017!
Valentina was born in San Marino and is to date, the only artist from the country to qualify for the Grand Final of the Eurovision Song Contest. In addition to 2017, she represented San Marino in 2012, 2013 and 2014. Valentina currently performs with her band My Funky Valentine and also collaborates with a band called Live Tropical Fish.
So, how to celebrate Valentina’s day? Here is a quick guide.
If you are looking for a date, then Valentina might have the perfect advice for you! According to Valentina’s Social Network Song from 2012 the best way to find a date is online!
If you are a bit shy, you might get inspired from Valentina’s second song Crisalide (Vola). The lyrics of the song translate as:
Fly, may the strength come,
Never alone again, towards another freedom
When you and your date match then...
We really are the dream of God
And we woke up in flesh and blood
To find our bodies transformed into gold
We are sure, that with all Valentina’s tips, you will be ready to be the Spirit of the Night!
Wherever you are celebrating, we wish you a very happy Valentine's Day!
