In case you haven’t noticed, it’s Valentine’s Day, and all couples are celebrating their love. Even Pope Francis joined the love-craze telling people to get married, while Ikea took a different — perhaps not as holy — approach to celebrating the day of love.

Valentine’s Day is so big even politicians can’t escape it. It’s so irresistible, in fact, that some even took it to Twitter to publicly display their love and wish their better halves a happy Valentine’s day.

Even President Barack Obama and the First Lady Michelle expressed their mutual love on Twitter with rather cheesy tweets. Though it looks like the commander in chief’s social media team may have penned his missive, as it’s lacking the “-bo” indicating that it’s from the president himself.

The new mayor of New York, Bill de Blasio, also had a tweet for his wife, Chirlane McCray. But she didn’t return the online wish — she hasn’t tweeted since February 12.

Some members of Congress, for once, were united following the President’s lead and used Twitter to celebrate Valentine’s day.

Rep. Scott Perry (R-Pa.) apparently didn’t have a picture with his wife to tweet, so he tweeted one of himself with the flowers he presumably bought for her. Hopefully they weren’t a surprise.

Others decided to take a slightly different approach. Sen. Pat Toomey (R-Pa.) tweeted a picture of a snowman couple.

And Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) tweeted an Instagram picture of a cute kitty.
