"Love is in the Air" is a seasonal event that takes place around Valentine's Day. The first "Love is in the Air" event occurred in 2006 for about 4 days. In 2010, the event was expanded to about two weeks and additional content added; see Love is in the Air (original) for the previous version.
From the official site:
- Something is in the air in the major cities of Azeroth. Some call it love, and some just call it friendship and admiration. Whichever it is, many guards and townsfolks now spend their days giving and receiving tokens and gifts to other amorous citizens.
- The more skeptical, however, are suspicious of the strange "love sickness" clouding the hearts of so many. Will this widespread occurrence be simply taken as a recent outbreak of amore? Or will our brave adventurers find a sinister plot behind the source of this plague of passion? Only time will tell...

- In Hearthstone, the Love Is in the Air card back was rewarded for achieving Rank 20 in Ranked Season 22, which took place during January 2016. The flavor text reads: "Many believe goblins made up this holiday to sell candy. It's not true! They also sell flowers and perfume!"
In 2007, Blizzard created a Burning Crusade commercial that featured the "Love is in the Air" event as well as the new jewelcrafting profession. From the official website, the ad was described as follows:
What do you get the blood elf who has everything? This Valentine's Day, make it an epic jewel! Yes, the industrial empires of Azeroth aren't about to let anyone escape the relentless marketing campai- er, bloom of true love associated with this time of year! Take a look at this new commercial but be warned that you may be struck by a sudden impulse to spend all the gold you've saved for your epic mount.
