Valentine’s Day, also called Saint Valentine’s Day or the Feast of Saint Valentine, is celebrated annually on February 14. Originating as a Western Christian feast day honoring one or two early saints named Valentinus, Valentine’s Day is recognized as a significant cultural, religious, and commercial celebration of romance and romantic love in many regions around the world.
“I just think Valentine’s Day is a day to really appreciate the person you love, no matter who it is, and to spend time with them. I don’t think it’s all about fancy presents or whatever. I think it’s about spending that quality time with that special person.”
~ Prince Royce is an American singer and songwriter of Dominican descent.
Valentine’s Day is a fun day to share love, flowers, chocolate (my favorite) and maybe a candlelight dinner with your significant other.
Although we need to spread love every day, I am glad that we have Valentine’s Day to remind us of the importance of showing love.
It is not important to have a significant other to celebrate with … but that you take time this week to share love with the people you see in your day-to-day activities.
The nice thing is … a little love goes a long way. And we never run out of it even when we spread it around. In fact, it multiplies the more we share it.
Here is one final quote about love and Valentine’s Day:
“This is love: to fly toward a secret sky, to cause a hundred veils to fall each moment. First to let go of life. Finally, to take a step without feet.”
~ Rumi was a 13th-century Persian poet, Islamic scholar, theologian, and Sufi mystic.
