Every year, Valentine’s Day falls on February 14 and on this day, lovers across the globe openly express their feelings for one another. This romantic holiday first started out as a Roman festival which celebrated the return of spring. By the 14th century, it came to be known as a day for lovers to send each other tokens of affection. In some places during the Middle Ages, it was also believed that February 14 was the start of birds’ mating season. As early as in the 1700s, commercial cards with love quotes and images were widely being produced and sent. From there on, new gift ideas emerged such as bouquets of flowers and teddy bears. Nowadays, people can also express their feelings via the Internet with memes or a playful GIF, all in hopes of making their partners smile. From morning to evening, sweethearts are seen strolling hand-in-hand toward fancy restaurants and movie theatres for a special date night. Some couples also enjoy a cozy night in with a nice home-cooked meal and movie.
