OTTAWA - It's anybody's guess why, but it seems more Canadians are in the mood for love this Valentine's Day compared to last year.

A Canadian Press Harris/Decima survey suggests 51 per cent of Canadians are planning to buy a gift or make special plans for today.
That compares to just 34 per cent in a survey done for Valentine's Day in 2009.
Forty-one per cent said they don't have any plans.
Harris/Decima vice-president Megan Tam says Canadians appear to be in better spirits this Valentine's Day compared to 2009.
A total of 2,033 Canadians were questioned between Feb. 4 and Feb. 7 for the poll that has a margin of error of 3.1%, 19 times out of 20.
The poll also suggests that more men than women have made special Valentine's Day plans.
Atlantic Canadians are the most likely to have plans - 58 per cent of respondents say they will do something special.
British Columbians perhaps are more focused on the Olympics than heart-shaped cards - just 43 per cent of B.C. respondents said they're making plans.
Fifty-four per cent of Quebecers asked are making plans and for other regions of the country, the number was around 50 per cent.
