While many of us are busy surfing the various online stations to find an ornate gift, pause for a few minutes and wonder why the damn are we jubilating? Is it only about exchanging gifts for a couple of days or the road less traveled? The committed baubles very often think about the deeper side of this festival. Probably because they’re too busy for that! And the singles are engaged in the Singles Appreciation Day fuss. Here’s a chance to uncover certain facts and amaze your partner with this extra dope.
This love-filled day originated in Rome when Emperor Claudius II prohibited the marriages of soldiers during wartime. St. Valentine arranged secret weddings and was jailed for his efforts. He wrote a letter to the Jailor’s daughter with a signature, ‘from your Valentine’.
White Day is celebrated on 14th March as an answer to Valentine’s Day. Men pay back to their partners by giving them three times expensive gift of what they received.
Men spend almost twice as much as women. While an average man spends around $150, women keep it confined to $80.
More than half of all the Valentine’s gifts are purchased a week prior to the holiday.
Parents receive only 1 out of every 5 valentine’s while teachers grab the maximum gifts.
Only 3% of people give Valentine gifts to their pets. You could increase the number!
Famous Valentine’s weddings are The Captain and Tennille, Jerry Garcia and Deborah Koons, Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee, Elton John and Renate Blauel, and Meg Ryan and Dennis.
If you are single, don’t fret; celebrate Singles Awareness Day (SAD) instead. Travel around and rejoice your single status.
