People are sharing photos of their 'Valentine's trees' online - but what are they?
It's the trend that's taken social media by storm, but what are Valentine's trees and how are people creating them?
As today (14 Feb) is Valentine's Day, you might have seen messages and pictures of gifts, flowers and cards on social media. But there's a new popular trend this year - the 'Valentine's tree'.
Put simply, the Valentine's tree is a Christmas tree decorated with pink and red hearts, red roses, feather boas, cupids and all things related to celebrating love.

With over 3,000 posts on Instagram sporting the hashtag #valentinestree, this is a popular trend in homes all over the country.
If the thought of taking down your Christmas tree is daunting....... DON’T take it down!! Simply turn it into a VALENTINES TREE!! ❤️💗❤️Here are some fun ways I’ve transitioned my trees from Christmas to Valentines! And notice even the Grinch tree has hearts that grew three sizes....... no way! 😆 What is your favorite? 1, 2, 3, or 4?

The trend seems to have started in America but has made its way over to here, with many Brits heading back up into the attic to give the Christmas tree another outing.
What do you think of the Valentine's trees?
