14th of February is Valentine’s Day. You have decided that this year you will make it special and don’t forget it like last year. This is a very good start but you need to know that a successful Valentine is a well prepared and planned Valentine. It means that last minute plans can be fun but a catastrophe.
I came across this lovely article online at the weekend and thought I would share it with you. It's called 'Love Never Ends'.
There is some debate as to the origin of Valentine’s Day, which is celebrated every year on 14th February. In ancient Greece for example, it was the time of year associated with love and fertility, whilst in ancient Rome the 13th-15th February were the dates of a Pagan fertility festival, during which, (according to Noel Lenski Professor at the University of Colorado) young men would strip naked and use goat or dog skin wraps to spank the backsides of young women in order to improve their fertility! Luckily, this is something we no longer uphold.
