So what have you planned on 14th Feb, 2021?
Valentine’s day celebrated worldwide every year on February 14, is an annual festival for cherishing romantic love, friendship, and admiration. People send messages of love and affection to their partners, friends, and family. Couples send cards and flowers and spend their special and quality time together to honor their love.
However, you need to figure out what you would like to say to your valentine. The sayings need not be sugary sweet, or romantic always. However, a little romance might go a long way, but it is essential to let your loved one know the respect you have and know about what the other one thinks.
Sometimes we have a tough time choosing the words to say to our loved ones, even we have a fuzzy warm heart. First, let us see the importance and history of Valentine’s day.
History and Importance of Valentine’s Day
The name for our modern-day love owes its origin and credit to the ancient Romans. Emperor Claudius II executed two men having the same name Valentine on this particular day, February 14, in different years during the 3rd Century. The Catholic Church honored the men’s martyrdom and celebrated the day as St. Valentine’s day. Later, Pope Gelasius I muddled things during the 5th Century. He combined St. Valentine’s day with Lupercalia and expelled the pagan rituals. Later, around the same time, the Normans started celebrating Galatin’s day, which meant “the lover of women.” People often confused Gallatin with Valentine as they sounded like.
With the passing of the years, the festival’s event became sweeter. Chaucer and Shakespeare romanticized the festival in their works, which later became popular throughout Great Britain and Europe. People started exchanging handmade paper cards as a token of love. Eventually, the festival found its way to the new world. The industrial revolution enhanced the card-making factory during the 19th Century. In 191, Hallmark Cards of Kansas City, Mo., started producing Valentine’s day cards in masses. Since then, the picture of February changed. Today, the holiday became a big business in the Western world and other parts of the world.
Here are certain things that we can say to your valentine on this Valentine’s Day.
