February, the month of the hearts and heartbreaks and heartaches. February, factually, seems to be the month with some of highest human activities in terms of commercial, interactive, intimacy and so on.
And guess how it all started, with banned wartime marriages. No doubt it had to be big, love and war together, this is what they got us to.
Emperor Claudius II of Rome didn't want men to marry during wars, but love has to happen and so our Bishop tied the knots against the wishes of the Emperor. He was jailed and executed later, but before that the jailer's daughter received a letter "from your Valentine" and that's where it began.
Receiving and giving love from their Valentines, it is the second biggest season for the card.
Which translates directly to Friend's Day. This day is more about celebrating pals than with lovers. Just a tip for the singles.
Single's Awareness Day is a national holiday following Valentine's Day, for those who had it bad and break ups and for those who had nothing at all. This is the day for the singles.
Girls ate them, to dream of their future spouse. Boys sort of eat them anyway so no comments on that.
The term originated from Middle ages when men and women used to pick slips bearing the names of their Valentines. They would then pin it to their sleeves for a whole week for everyone to see. And, so the phrase.
England's King Henry VII made it official and also a holiday.
By making a special box of chocolates, he set forward a trend that led to 35 million heart-shaped chocolates being sold every year on this day as of now. That is more than over $1 billion in worth in a single day.
The wrong teacher in the image above, they are followed by children, mothers, wives, sweethearts and pets, so much for the guys though, that is why the teacher above.
And honestly speaking, most are rejected too. So, I wish you luck and have a great St. Valentine's Day or the SAD day that follows.
