It’s Valentines day! It’s one of my favorite holidays because I get a lot of sweets and cool cards, and everything just has a happy, pink feeling. I especially like the IFC mall in Hong Kong during Valentines day, because it always has some extravagant decorations, this year they had a white dome surrounded with red and gold statues of birds and inside the dome showed a movie with golden birds flying across fields. Tonight, I’m going to a dinner party with my parents and I’m probably going to be incredibly bored, but I’ll still be positive. Anyways, I want to know what you guys will do today, so leave comment below!
Valentines day was originally a day to honor St. Valentines. Well who was St. Valentines? He was the patron saint of love and he secretly wedded couples when the emperor of Rome cancelled all weddings and engagements in Rome to have a more effective army. When his actions were uncovered, he was brutally beaten and killed. February 14 was set as a day to honor him, but was not celebrated until the Middle Ages. And card giving didn’t start until the 18th century! So what you can think of now when you hear Valentines Day (roses, romantic dinners, cards etc.), are not even traditions! I hope you learned some things about Valentines Day from this post.
