According to this  Huffington Post article, the way Valentine’s day began is very different from the way we celebrate it nowadays. It was originally a festival to encourage health and fertility in sheep and cattle of Roman farmers. It involved animal sacrifice and other traditional activities. Only in 18th century Britain did the day appear similar to what we’re used to. Men and women would exchange love notes and gifts. The tradition spread to the USA and became very popular resulting in an average spend of $13.3 billion a year.
So here are some questions for you to think about;
How do you feel about Valentine’s day? Do you see the day as an opportunity to celebrate your love for your partner? Are you the kind of person who gives flowers, chocolates or presents? Do you feel like it’s a day to be especially in love with your partner?

So, what do you think? Let us know, we’re always very interested in finding out your opinions!
