If advertiser (and shoppers) can start talking about Christmas right after Halloween, it’s probably okay to mention Valentine’s Day now.
“Saint Valentine” has a long and somewhat complicated history, but for our purposes, this entry in Wikipedia should be sufficient:
During the Middle Ages, it was believed that birds paired in mid-February. This was then associated with the romance of Valentine. Although all these legends may differ in ways, Valentine’s day is widely recognized as a day for romance and devotion.”
Of course, it’s exciting to be romantic all year long, but it’s also fun (and beneficial) to set aside this special day to let your partner (and remind yourself) just how wonderful being together is.
So…what do you do to celebrate Valentine’s Day; how do you make it different from other relationship occasions? Are you already planning or are you going to wait until the spirit moves you?
