"Love Is Extraordinary"

When we think of Valentines Day what normally comes to mind is seduction, romance, and even sweethearts! This holiday is celebrated around the world, but is greeting cards and a box of chocolates really what this tradition is all about? Some critics have stated they feel Valentines Day, a lot like Christmas has become very “commercialized.” You literally can’t go a day without seeing a TV commercial depicting someone being purposed to or even a romantic gesture. This holiday brings really large revenue to many business that plaster there windows with red, purple, and pink clothing, accessories, and even items to get for your man. 

Besides wishing your significant other love this holiday. Some people actually wish everyone Happy Valentines Day. The word Valentine is so interesting enough to make us beg the question. What is the origin of this special romantic holiday? 

The day was first associated with romantic love in the High Middle Ages, when the tradition of courtly love flourished. In 18th-century England, it evolved over time into an occasion in which lovers expressed their love for each other by presenting flowers, offering confectionary, and sending greeting cards (known as “valentines”). 

In Europe, Saint Valentine’s Keys are given to lovers “as a romantic symbol and an invitation to unlock the giver’s heart”, as well as to children, in order to ward off epilepsy (called Saint Valentine’s Malady). Since the 19th century, handwritten valentines have given way to mass-production greeting cards.
