Valentine’s Day

Today is Valentine’s day !

In America, many folks celebrate this day with Cards, Flowers (Roses, Bouquets, etc.), Chocolates, Jewelry, and even proposals of Marriage.

But, believe it or not, this is not just an American Holiday. In Finland, for example, it is known as “Friend’s Day” and in Guatemala it is known as “Day of Love and Friendship.”

The origin of Valentine’s Day is somewhat shrouded in mystery but there are several ‘theories’. To read about the possible origins of Valentine’s Day and other interesting information, HERE’S A LINK and HERE’S ANOTHER LINK.
