Usually the former Headmaster and potions master HATED all major holidays.
January had nothing of significance worth worrying about...
At least not enough to be interrogated over during mealtime or interrupting
their already brief class-time...
No the little pauses in the day in which he managed to catch the eye of his betrothed

February would be different.
Though part of him craved the various insides of the chocolate assortment; Snape would never endanger his reputation by stepping foot in the cheerful candy confectionary establishment.
Catching sight of himself in a reflective surface he nearly gave way to a smile.
Severus heart felt as if it gave an extra beat of joy each time she came into view...
