It's so ridiculous that Valentine's Day is one long week celebration! The day is named after one or more early Christian martyrs, Saint Valentine, and was established by Pope Gelasius I in 500 AD. It was deleted from the Roman calender of saints in 1969 by Pope Paul VI, but its religious observance is still permitted. Oh so boring and who cares about the facts. It's all about love in the air! It is traditionally a day on which lovers express their love for each other by presenting flowers, offering confectionery, and sending greeting cards ( known as "valentines"). The day first became associated with romantic love in the circle of Geoffrey Chaucer in the High Middle Ages, when the tradition of courtly love flourished. So now it's synonym to LOVE! 14th February...oh it's Valentine's Day! Modern Valentine's Day symbols include the heart-shaped outline, doves, and the figure of the winged Cupid. Cupid's attack, huh? Companies specializing in greeting card manufacturing booming! No matter where ever you are or where you go...Valentine buzzing! Internet, TV, Radio, Schools, Colleges, Offices..... Some elated because they have their Valentine booked long before, Some brimming with curiosity and enthusiasm because they found their Valentine last week! :) And, some nostalgic and despondent because their once so-called Valentine now an ex. :( But trust me it's an easy way to propose! Don't believe...don't you see the way it's being celebrated. All you have to do is to start with a Rose! You decide what color...preferably RED...remember love in the air! Oh! Didn't work...no worries! Go ahead with CHOCOLATES...some exotic ones..hunt the supermarkets and malls! Guess little working, huh? So now to confirm...present a TEDDY BEAR! Will make her/him miss you! Oh! Going great! Now something can be asked for...why not A HUG...huh? A HUG! Yeah! YeY! Mission accomplished! Now no looking back! And, then the KISS day...wonderful memories (may be momentary...who cares? It's Valentine's Day) And solemnizing the D day..... VALENTINE'S DAY! She/He is your Valentine!! The rose is red, the violet's blue The honey's sweet, and so are you Thou are my love and I am thine I drew thee to my Valentine The lot was cast and then I drew And Fortune said it shou'd be you. Phew! It was so easy! Easy, huh? Good luck!
