No matter how lowly you rate Valentine’s week, you can’t help but agree that when you make your loved ones feel special, it leaves a long-lasting mark on their memory. It rekindles and strengthens love among people. Perhaps this is why the world observes Valentine’s day to enjoy the feeling of true love.
Traditionally, people celebrate Valentine’s day or the ‘Day of Romance’ to honour the sacrifice of Saint Valentine, who was martyred in fifth century. This is why, the Valentine’s Day on February 14 is celebrated as the ‘Feast of St. Valentine’ or ‘Saint Valentine’s Day’ in Christian communities. Though, the concept was borrowed from ancient Roman holiday Lupercalia.
What started as a western practice soon spread around the world. People celebrate the Valentine’s week from February 8 to February 14. On this occasion, people exchange card, flowers, gifts, candies, chocolate and other goodies with their loved ones.
In case you don’t know what to gift when, just take a look at our Valentine’s day calendar.
