15 things to do on Valentine’s Day

15 things to do on Valentine’s Day



It’s here again, it’s the season of Love, it’s February 14, its Valentine’s Day. There’s a history behind the famous Valentine’s Day which we all should know. 

I’ll make it brief and precise. It all started in Rome with a priest of Rome who assisted persecuted Christians and was killed for it.
There are many ways to celebrate Valentine's Day. In some countries, Valentine’s Day is celebrated on the 14th of February while in others. 

Valentine’s Day is celebrated on other dates depending on the country’s calendar, other belief, and cultural practices and preferences.

Notable Valentine’s Day Celebration and Status

  • The custom of gifting flowers, cards, chocolates, bangles and watches with other gift items is said to have originated from the United Kingdom, 
  • In China, Valentine’s Day is called “lovers Festival” 
  • In some culture and custom, it is marked by a fashion day known as the “white day” when most young people dress beautifully in white to celebrate love with the presentation of gifts and sweet words to mark their love day. 
  • Notable among the Lebanese, Valentine’s Day is a day when people exchange sweet words and gifts as a sign of love. 
  • In the Philippines, Valentine’s Day is mostly marked by wedding events and love celebrations with lots of gifts for exchange and love in the air. 
  • In Ireland, people in search for true love visit the resting place of St. Valentine in pilgrimage, to pray for true love, 
  • In Finland and to some other people, Valentine’s Day is simply “friend’s day”, meaning, a day to remember, appreciate and celebrate with friends, 
  • For many other people according to values and norms, Valentine’s Day is a day set aside for family reunification, celebration, and exchange of gifts and ideas.

Whether the history of Valentine beginning with St. Valentine of Rome is the real account of Valentine’s Day or not, I think a day in a whole 365 days a year isn’t bad at all to celebrate and share gifts and affection for lovers, friends and/or family.
