Valentine’s Day 2021

This year will be the first time that the holiday has been celebrated during a full on pandemic. People have learned how to cope with the virus and the vast majority practice the safe guards that are made readily available. Still we have to find time and alternative ways to not let the sweet moments in life pass us by. Valentine’s Day for example is one of those special holidays that makes hearts flutter and people smile.

So what is some of the history surrounding this romantic day. According to legend, Valentine’s Day is celebrated on February 14th because in 269 AD on this day,  Saint Valentine died.  Saint Valentine was said to have gone against the laws of the Roman courts by performing marriages for soldiers and helping persecuted Christians. He was then imprisoned and sentenced to execution. Before his sentence was carried out he cured the blindness of a woman named Julia. She was the daughter of his jailer. He also wrote her a letter before his sentence was carried out and signed it “Your Valentine”.

According to the English historian,  John Fox,  Saint Valentine was buried in the Church of Praxedes in Rome. It is thought, according to legend, that Julia herself planted a pink-blossomed almond tree near his grave.  That tree remains a symbol of their devotion, love and friendship.

It is thought that Saint Valentine wore a purple amethyst ring. This ring was commonly worn by Christian Bishops. It had the image of Cupid carved on it which as we know is a symbol today of love. In those times it was associated with love that was legal in the Roman Empire.  Due to the association of the ring and Saint Valentine, the amethyst is the birthstone of February and is thought to attract love.

Under the influence of Geoffrey Chaucer in the 14th century,  Valentine’s Day became associated with romantic love. In England by the 18th-century, it was common for people in love to gift flowers, candy and cards to each other. All of these were expressions of love and devotion. As we know, the most common symbols of love on Valentine’s Day include heart shapes, doves or the figure of the flying Cupid. Handwritten notes expressing one’s love and devotion have become popular as well as greeting cards.

There is not a better time to embrace “Home is where the heart is” than this year’s Valentine’s Day. No need to leave the comfort of your own home unless you want to. With restaurants, bars and other venues scaled back for attendance, there are plenty of ways you can have a romantic and memorable evening by staying home.

  • Cook – Does your sweetheart have a favorite meal? You can research recipes and give it a try. Whether your creation is delectable or not, the thought you put into trying to create a wonderful meal will no doubt score romantic points.
  • Create a Relaxing Environment – Light candles and draw a bubble bath for your special someone. You can pamper one another and let the pressures of everyday life drift away.
  • Dance – Bring back that fun feeling when you and your sweetheart twirled around the dance floor. You can move some furniture and put on your favorite tunes. There are also plenty of online classes if you want to learn a new dance.
  • Watch Movies – Whether you both choose to watch romantic, scary or action flicks, spending time snuggled up will make for a wonderful Valentine’s Day. If movies do not work for you then perhaps browsing through old photo albums that bring back sweet memories will.
  • Picnic – Check the weather forecast as after all it is winter but if it looks nice plan an outdoor picnic in your backyard. Work hard to get the setting just right and then take your sweetheart by the hand and lead them to your backyard picnic paradise.
  • Play Games – If you and your sweetheart are board game or card aficionados, set up some games. Maybe you like something like a scavenger hunt and the prize might be a romantic bouquet of flowers from Flowerama Columbus!
