Re: What is Second Grade Valentine's Day?
As bhaisahab pointed out, there is no mention of "Valentine's Day" anywhere in that dialogue. Sometimes, we refer to our boyfriend/girlfriend/partner as our "Valentine" ie the person we love.

They might hold hands a lot and have cute conversations about getting married when they're really old (about 19!) It's not a proper relationship in the real romantic sense, but in later years, they might refer to that first special friendship in this way.
"Well, I'm married now of course, with four kids, but I've had my fair share of girlfriends over the years. Sometimes I even wonder what my second grade Valentine, Shelley-Ann Bartram, is doing now. She was so sweet. Long dark pigtails, a freckly nose, a tinkly little laugh. I really thought I was in love! When I was six! Cute, huh?"
