With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, every romantic wanderer and cynical single is anticipating the big 14th. For years and years our societies all over the world have known about this day of St Valentine…whether or not they buy the obligatory bunch of red roses on the day is another thing.
Valentine’s Day, dating back to the 5th century, origins from a Roman holiday and still sparks up the early and short month of February. The colour red, the flower rose, the chocolates heart shaped. Whatever the ideal, you cannot escape the red shaped balloons at every service station. A boost and insert of love and kindled spirit? Or a glum day, for all the lone rangers out there living their lives, as their one and only.
However your Valentine’s Day is being celebrated, or not in the case for some, St Valentine’s Day cannot be escaped, nor can the meaning, as some may see it; a day destined for love, hugs and kisses with that special someone igniting the flame.
The world turns red for the month of Feb, all to show your love and affection for someone special in your life, or to open up and be that secret admirer. No matter what it is, the love is felt and the world spins on its axis in a shade of rouge, whilst “the big man” cashes in on all items bought for the magical day. Candy, chocolates, flowers, balloons, restaurants, hotels and the obvious, the jewellers! All totalling up their tills, which are over crowed with receipts from eager lovers. A clever gimmick? Or a loving holiday reminding people that romance is never dead. Whatever your view, it’s just around the corner.
Happy Valentines to all that take part in it.❤️
