Supercharge your Valentine’s Day

Valentine’s Day is a wonderful celebration of love and lovers, a day to fall in love! It’s a special time to exchange cards and gits. Chocolate, romantic dinners and flowers are always a fun way to celebrate. Valentine’s Day goes can be traced back to ancient times, when people paid honor to the Roman God of Fertility, the Feast of Lupercalia, celebrated even then on February 14th.

Here’s two interesting facts:
During the year, 75% of chocolate purchases are made by women. However, the days before Valentine’s Day, 75% of the chocolate purchases are made by men.

February 14th was known to be the first day of the bird mating for the season. This fact brought about the custom of sending valentines.

    At this time in my life it’s a sweet day for others! Enjoy it any way you can. My ex might remember to get a card or he might not. The only time I got flowers on Valentines Day was when he came to my house to move his stuff out after we separated.
