Valentine's Day or Saint Valentine's Day is a holiday celebrated on February 14 by many people throughout the world. In the English-speaking countries, it is the traditional day on which lovers express their love for each other by sending Valentine's cards, presenting flowers, or offering confectionery. The holiday is named after two among the numerous Early Christian martyrs named Valentine. The day became associated with romantic love in the circle of Geoffrey Chaucer in the High Middle Ages, when the tradition of courtly love flourished.
The U.S. Greeting Card Association estimates that approximately one billion valentines are sent each year worldwide, making the day the second largest card-sending holiday of the year, behind Christmas. The association estimates that, in the US, men spend on average twice as much money as women
i think romantic love is beautiful, if you find that special unconditional partner. in latin america, where i used to live often, feb 14 is more inclusively called DIA DE AMISTAD. their reason being " for those who have found romantic love, Valentine's day should be 365 days ." well i supposed the same would apply to friendship. still, it's a good excuse for you all to be sending me chocolates ... hmmm, yummy, i adore Baci, just so you know :)
This might sound funny, but I've never bothered with Valentines day. It's never meant anything to my husband and I, not like our wedding anniversary, or some other dates that mean something to us. Probably why there aren't any valentines images in my port. Ba humbug lol ;P
