Each year on February 14th, many people envision an exchange of cards, candy, gifts or flowers with their specially loved “valentine” in celebration of Valentine’s Day. But did you know that the day of romance we refer to as Valentine’s Day is named for a Christian martyr and dates back to the 5th century? Or did you know that its origin is in the Roman holiday Lupercalia? Possibly not. What you probably did know is it’s a special day you set aside to let those we care for in an extra special way know they are… well, “special”, “loved”, “cared for”! The means in which we show this sincere gesture of affection comes in many different forms. Maybe a card! Did you know that nearly 150 million cards are exchanged each Valentine’s Day? Doesn’t sound so special when you know that now – does it? How about chocolates?
Did you know more than 40,000 American are employed at chocolate companies? Well, that’s a good reason to buy you sweetheart sweets … or is that the sentiment you want to convey? How about a poem that helps describe how you really feel? Did you know authors, poets and playwrights have been trying to capture love in words for thousands of years? Their work speaks to the enduring power of love across the ages of human history! Quotes about love come from some of the world’s most famous romantics like Shakespeare, who wrote 154 sonnets dealing with love, time, beauty and mortality, to famed Chilean poet and diplomat Pablo Neruda. So how are you going top that? Well, maybe you can’t, but you do need to try – don’t let this opportunity, this special day set aside to specifically say what you want to say pass you by. Pick a card, chocolates, a poem or whatever – just make sure this special opportunity doesn’t go without notice – Valentine’s Day!
