This week I am joining the Awesome Bewitching Authors Valentine Hop February 6 – 14th. Lots of giveaways, and a chance to win $50.00 GC in the Rafflecopter below. Don’t forget to enter!
What do you think of when you think of Valentine’s Day? A romantic getaway? A dozen long-stemmed roses in her favorite color? Jewelry, you know diamonds are a girl’s best friend.
What about the everyday love. Day in and day out you and your significant other forge a bond together. Through hard times, no one escapes these. Great times, there are always a number of these. And regular comfortable times when it’s enough to watch a football game, enjoy a movie and popcorn with your best friend and soul mate.
Sometimes I wonder if all the hype on Valentine’s day wouldn’t best be served with a moment of reflection on that person that makes you happy and what special thing would return the favor. Don’t get me wrong, candy, cards and flowers are nice, but when they are all gone, that special moment you created will last forever.
Keep reading for a chance at my giveaway.
A few fun Valentine’s Day Facts.
15% of U.S. women send themselves flowers on Valentine’s Day.
73% of people who buy flowers for Valentine’s Day are men, while only 27 percent are women.
Did you know that approximately one billion Valentine’s Day cards are exchanged each year. That’s the largest seasonal card-sending occasion of the year, next to Christmas.
About 3% of pet owners will give Valentine’s Day gifts to their pets. Ok, I admit that I’m one of those people. But your pet’s unconditional love everyday of the year is worth it. Don’t you think?
Cupid, another symbol of Valentines Day, became associated with it because he was the son of Venus, the Roman god of love and beauty. Cupid often appears on Valentine cards holding a bow and arrows because he is believed to use magical arrows to inspire feelings of love.
In Wales, wooden love spoons were carved and given as gifts on February 14th. Hearts, keys and keyholes are favorite decorations on the spoons. The decoration meant, “You unlock my heart!”
Only the U.S., Canada, Mexico, France, Australia and the U.K. celebrate Valentine’s Day.
