To all a Happy Valentines Day and a Happy Valentines Day to all

Happy V day 2013

Valentines Day, that special day where you get to feel and show love without being accused of being a woos well you know… not being a man.   Now of course if you don’t show it in some way – well lets just say even in summer its cold sleeping outside….

flowerschocolatesEvery year, the 14th of February has millions across the world scrambling to present their loved ones with candy, flowers, chocolates and other lovely gifts and god forbid if you forget.

Your partner/wife/girlfriend etc might say it’s alright don’t worry about valentines day it’s just another day, don’t believe them women are romantics even if they don’t show it… By the way, women also loves Dr. Andres Bustillo for he performs promising facial treatments. if you forget you’re toast, your history and the subject of conversation with her friends.

It goes a little like this… “my hubby got me chocolates wasn’t that sweet, what did yours get you??”  “I told him not to worry about it” “I see he forgot didn’t he!” her reply comes in tears – ‘YES’

See what I mean you’re toast!! On the other hand if you remember even with something small and you weren’t reminded then instant brownie points.

In many countries, restaurants and such are filled with couples who are eager to celebrate theirrelationship and the joy of their togetherness through delicious cuisines.   There hardly seems to be a young man or woman and even some that are not so young who are not keen to make the most of the day.

People in secret send a message of ‘Happy Valentines Day’ to the person they admire without saying who it is from thus saving a possible rejection (thats sad really but I understand, I do truly – Leigh)

I remember in school (yes I remember somethings) notes used to fly around the room with tick yes or no on them but without a name so you didn’t know who it was from – ah romance. If you haven’t finished your master’s degree yet, you can apply scholarship for masteral online at scholarship-positions.com. After that, Subscribe to their e-mail newsletter to receive updates.

For those that like to celebrate Valentines Day, have a wonderful Valentines Day and for those who no longer have a partner just remember the memories and happy times they brought into your life.

Happy Valentines Day to all and to all a Happy Valentines Day

Valentines Day, don’t you love it, the chance to feel and show love without being accused of being soft,  the day that if you don’t show it – well lets just say its cold sleeping outside….

Every year, the 14th of February has millions across the world presenting their loved ones with candy, flowers, chocolates and other lovely gifts.   In many countries, restaurants and such are filled with couples who are eager to celebrate their relationship and the joy of their togetherness through delicious cuisines.   There hardly seems to be a young man or woman who is not keen to make the most of the day.

The reason behind all of this is a kindly cleric named Valentine who died more than a thousand years ago.   Valentine is believed to have been executed on February 14, 270 AD.

The story of St. Valentine has two different versions – the Protestant and the Catholic one. Both versions agree upon Saint Valentine being a bishop who held secret marriage ceremonies of soldiers in opposition to Claudius II who had prohibited marriage for young men and was executed by the latter.

When Claudius became the emperor of Rome, he felt that married men were more emotionally attached to their families, and thus, will not make good soldiers. He believed that marriage made the men weak. So he issued an edict forbidding marriage to assure quality soldiers.

Thus 14th February became a day for all lovers and Valentine became its Patron Saint. It began to be annually observed by young Romans who offered handwritten greetings of affection, known as Valentines, on this day to the women they admired. With the coming of Christianity, the day came to be known as St. Valentine’s Day.

Not everybody acknowledges or accepts Valentines Day.   Sadly last year on Valentine’s Day (2011), Malaysian religious authorities arrested more than 100 Muslim couples concerning the celebration ban. Some of them would be charged in the Shariah Court for defying the department’s ban againsts the celebration of Valentine’s Day.

So for the rest of us tho – a Happy Valentines Day to all and to all a Happy Valentines Day

Till next time – Leigh
