Love is in the air and rightly so; it is the month of love after all. There’s no better way to celebrate love than to appreciate our faves who give us #relationshipgoals ?
A little history about Valentine’s Day
Valentine’s Day, also called ‘Saint Valentine’s Day’ or the ‘Feast of Saint Valentine’, is celebrated annually on February 14. Originating as a Western Christian feast day honouring one or two early saints named Valentinus, Valentine’s Day is recognised as a significant cultural, religious and commercial celebration of romance and romantic love in many regions around the world, although it is not a public holiday in any country.
The day first became associated with romantic love within the circle of Geoffrey Chaucer in the 14th century, when the tradition of courtly love flourished. In 18th-century England, it evolved into an occasion in which lovers expressed their love for each other by presenting flowers, offering confectionery and sending greeting cards (known as ‘valentines’).
