Valentine Traditions and 2017 Gift Guide

valentine-floating-heart-banner

Love does not consist in gazing at each other,

But in looking together in the same direction.”

Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

valentine-teddy-bear-love

Say the phrase Valentine’s Day and thoughts of hearts, roses, chocolates, love and romance spring to mind.  Valentine’s Day traditions include exchanging gifts, such as chocolates or roses, and a romantic night out on the town. School children often exchange Valentines Cards that may contain candy.

GIFTS OF LOVE FOR YOUR HOME

 

Decorations typically feature Cupid and his arrows, doves, and hearts.  Cupid became a symbol of Valentine’s Day due to the fact that he is the Roman god associated with the erotic, passionate type of love. His arrows cause his targets to fall in love.

ROMANTIC CARDS FOR YOUR SWEETHEART

With its roots in a religious celebration, Valentine’s Day is largely a North American celebration yet it is observed and celebrated in many countries around the world but in different ways;  as a sign of spring, and agricultural celebration, as a friends’ day etc.

GIFTS FOR EVERYONE ON YOUR LIST

 

We’re all a little weird. And life is a little weird.

And when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible

with ours, we join up with them

 and fall into mutually satisfying weirdness —

and call it love — true love.”

Robert Fulghum

The old year cracks under the burdensome weight of twelve heavy months, and the next year emerges fresh and anew from its shell.

A cracked bell still tolls”

~Terri Guillemets

Friendship is unnecessary, like philosophy, like art.

It has no survival value; rather it is one of those things
