Now that January is behind us, it’s time to look forward to the next special date in our calendars – Valentine’s Day. Though it’s not an official national holiday, and the majority of us will be heading off to work as if it’s any other day, Valentine’s Day is a key date in the diary for a lot of people. Whether you have been married for many years or you are at the very beginning of a new relationship, there is something special about celebrating Valentine’s Day with a loved one. In fact, Valentine’s Day can be a special day for singletons who want to celebrate their love between friends and family. Regardless of how you are spending Valentine’s Day and who you are celebrating with, don’t forget to spread the love.
The Countdown to Valentine’s Day
There is no shortage of ways to celebrate Valentine’s Day, which is one of its major appeals. Some people choose to keep things simple with a card and by spending time with their partner, whereas others go all out by booking a fancy dinner and showering their spouse with gifts. There is no right or wrong way to mark Valentine’s Day, which means everyone can celebrate as much or as little as they like. Whatever you choose to do, you are sure to get caught up in the romance.
But, how much do you know about Valentine’s Day? For example, did you know that Valentine’s Day has been a day associated with love since the 1300s? There are a tonne of interesting facts about Valentine’s Day, such as how the first Valentine was sent in the 15th century and giving flowers on Valentine’s Day dates back to the 17th century. As you can see, it’s much more than the commercialised marketing ploy that many people assume it to be. It’s a day that has historic roots, a day that is bound to be around for many years to come.
