Valentine’s Day Exciting Myths & Facts

Did you know that if you see a flock of doves on Valentine’s Day, you will have a peaceful and happy married life? Well, there are so many interesting myths and exciting facts around the day that is synonymous with love and the mush around it!

And, here are some of them:

  • It is believed that way back in the Middle Ages, young men and women picked names from a bowl to find out who their special Valentine would be. They would then wear the respective name on their sleeves for a week. Perhaps, this is what inspired the phrase ‘to wear your heart on your sleeve’, which in the present day context means ‘to express your views, opinions and emotions freely and openly for everyone to see’.
  • Your feathered friends become fortune tellers on February 14th. It is believed that the type of bird that a girl sees on Valentine’s Day predicts her future husband. For example, a sparrow denotes a poor man, a squirrel means she will marry a cheapskate who will take away all her money, a bluebird means she will marry a happy man, a blackbird means she will marry a priest or clergyman, a crossbill indicates an argumentative partner, and seeing an owl means that she will remain a spinster for life. We, too, give you a view of a variety of feathered friends in our products!

  • A number of florists have mentioned that in terms of flower purchases, Valentine’s Day is one of the busiest floral holidays of the year, second only to Mother’s Day. Beautiful, indeed! Isn’t it! You could make this Valentine’s Day equally special for your mother by gifting her a pretty bouquet of red roses. After all, your mother will always be the first and greatest love of your life!
  • There is something so special about a handwritten love letter. It has a unique fragrance and feel to it! Every Valentine’s Day, the Italian city of Verona, where Shakespeare’s lovers Romeo and Juliet lived, receives as many as 1,000 letters addressed to Juliet. This February 14th, how about writing one to the Juliet of your life!
  • In a day and age of mobile phones and various other high-end gadgets, the modest telephone has almost taken a backseat. However, it is interesting to know that Alexander Graham Bell filed for the application for his patent on the telephone, an ‘Improvement in Telegraphy’, on February 14, 1876! Think about it if it weren’t for this invention, the ones succeeding it (think: mobile phones, messages, emoticons, et al) would have been impossible. We salute this lovely invention in a number of our products!

  •  Richard Cadbury, the famous chocolate manufacturer, invented the first Valentine’s Day candy box in the late 1800s. Chocolates and candies will always be one of the most special ways to a woman’s heart!
  •  In some countries, a prospective suitor presents to his sweetheart a gift of clothing. If she keeps the gift, it means she has accepted his proposal of marriage. We give you a number of gifting options, too, at our Valentine’s Bazaar.

Here’s wishing, everyone, a very Happy Valentine’s Day. Keep spreading the love!
