Valentines Day is approaching soon and some of us have started to think about it and what we should do for our sweetie. Valentines Day makes us think of sweet things like chocolate. It is ironic that we are supposed to buy our sweetie candy when many of us just gave up sweets for our New Years resolution. Candy is dandy and hard to pass up if your sweetie gives it to you on Valentines Day. I myself can’t pass up candy for Valentines Day so I make sure I enjoy it before it goes stale usually in the first twenty four hours.
Celebrations like Valentines Day have been around for hundreds of years. In England the children would dress up like adults and go singing house to house. In the Middle ages men and women would draw names from a bowl to find out who their Valentine was. Then they would wear the persons name on their sleeve for a week and that is where the expression ‘she wears her heart on her sleeve” came from. People started giving each other flowers way back in the l700’s. People like to show there love for each other and it has been that way for a long time.
I don’t want to say that you shouldn’t buy candy for your sweetie for Valentines Day. Valentines Day can be very stressful and candy may be the solution to help cope with the stress of Valentines Day. For some Valentines Day is more stressful then Christmas depending on your situation? But for most of us Christmas is still more stressful then Valentines Day. I believe Valentines Day is for lovers and so you should give your lover a nice heartfelt Valentine. It doesn’t have to be expensive but it should come from the heart.
What ever way you feel you should celebrate Valentines Day is up to you. Chocolate is a sweet treat to show your Valentine you love them. If candy is presented in a heart shape it makes the person getting the candy feel very loved and special. If you don’t want to give a heart of chocolate a box or just a piece can make someone feel loved too. If you haven’t known the person very long a smaller dose of chocolate is better.
A handmade card is always appreciated. When you make a Valentines Day card by hand it tells your Valentine that you took the time to make this and therefore you care about them. Hand made Valentines Day cards do not take much money to make and they can still be very special for your Valentines Day sweetie.
Flowers are a favorite Valentines Day gift. Roses are the flower that is the symbol of love. If you give roses you should only give one single rose or you should give them in a dozen. If you really feel extravagant you can give a couple dozen roses. Always give roses in dozen counts or just one single rose to show your love. Flowers are great if Valentines Day just happened to slip your mind till the last minute because you can always call a florist to help you out of a tight spot.
