Valentine’s Day :
Valentine’s Day, also called Saint Valentine’s Day or the Feast of Saint Valentine, is an annual holiday celebrated on February 14. It originated as a Western Christian liturgical feast day honoring one or more early saints named Valentinus, and is recognized as a significant cultural and commercial celebration in many regions around the world, although it is not a public holiday in any country.Over the years this day has been celebrated by many lovers and couples whether married or in a relationship.
We are now at that time of the year again when people go crazy in proclaiming their love for their loved ones on Valentine’s Day. But putting aside all the commercial hype, just what is really going on here?!
If you are in a relationship, is it what you always dreamed about? And why should you only celebrate and demonstrate your love on just one day of the year?
In a dream relationship, you bring out the best in one another and make yourself stronger together as a team than apart. Such a relationship helps you become a better person and provides you with the happiness that you deserve.
If you have been together for a long time, you could take each other for granted. This does not imply that your love for each other is fading, simply a lack of effort. Be willing to make the time and effort for each other.
Be realistic too and accept that no one person is ever going to fulfil your every need and desire. Truly committing yourself to someone requires insight, trust, and being open to vulnerability. Finding such a person and respecting your judgement are a prerequisite to creating an everlasting,happy relationship.
Valentine’s day was celebrated in a soft,quiet and very modest manner. With many couples or lovers spending a substantial amount of time with their “valentine” or lover.
Couples would talk over a bottle of wine and some good food at home and exchange small gifts.
This way of celebration has recently been modified into a more sophisticated and extravagant show of wealth rather than love. Many lovers are now much more concerned with where their partners will take them on that day.Whether it is a full weekend in a luxurious hotel or resort or a fully packed package of a candle light dinner,massage and partying,the main focus has gradually shifted from the show of love to the show of wealth.
