Valentine is a designated day to show some love for your significant other. While every day is a good day to shower and spread some love, on Valentine’s day, love is in the air. People in love go a step further in expressing their feelings with gifts and gestures that show their affection.
Historically Valentine’s day has its origin set as the “Feast day”, also known as the “Feast of Saint Valentine”. Folklore has it that a cruel ruler of Rome, Emperor Claudius ii had given orders that St. Valentine be executed as he had couples get married in secret. The emperor wanted to raise an army and was angry that the men in his kingdom do not join in as they are too attached to their wives and lovers.
Valentine was thus executed and he left a farewell note for the daughter of his jailer which was signed: “From Your Valentine”. Thereafter, it became a day of celebrating love. Most people associate Valentine’s Day with a romantic form of love. But, ideally, it is just a day of love. It can be for anyone you have affection for.
Most people go out of their way to give some really thoughtful gifts to their partners. While others, celebrate love with flowers, chocolates and greeting cards making the day extra special. Now, this what the ordinary do. But, the celebrities won’t be them if they don’t go for something extravagant.
