History And Traditions Of Valentine’s Day Around The World

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Today you don’t say those words just to your life partener, but to all the special people in your life.

This romantic celebration has deep roots in our history and many different traditions and customs around the world. So we thought it would be fun to go back in time and see where it all started. Well now, we all know that on February 14 we celebrate Saint Valentine’s Day, but have you ever wondered who is this mysterious saint and how old is this celebration now?

This is a centuries-old celebration

We’ll start with the fact that this is a centuries-old celebration, by some back in the Middle Ages – where was a popular belief in France and England that birds began to mate in the middle of February – or back in the ancient Roman time, where rituals where taken place.

It is belived that this is a pagan celebration of Lupercalia, a fertility festival dedicated to Faunus (Roman God of Agriculture) and to the Roman founders Romulus and Remus. The Luperci members, an order of Roman priests, where gathering during this festival in a sacared cave, where was belived that infants Romulus and Remus have been cared by a she-wolf or lupa. Here were performing sacrifice rituals for fertility and purification, where the Roman woman welcomed the touch of the sacrified goat hides. Also according to the legend young woman were placing their names in a big urn, from where the Roman bachelors would choose a name to become paired with for a year, often ending in marriage.

Otherwise, there are many legends about Saint Valentine, but one recognized by the Catholic Curch contends that a priest named Valentine, serving in the third century in Rome, was outlawing marriages for young lovers in secret, despite the decision of Emperor Claudius II that single man made better choises then those with wifes. Discovering the actions of Valentine, the Emperor Claudius II ordered his death. From here the celebration in the middle of February, to commemorate the anniversary of Valentine’s death, that occured around a.d. 270.

Today, Valentine’s Day is a festival of love. All around the world on this day people exchange love. In France we exchange greetings by an old custom through elegant cards with tender messages that are called “cartes d’amities” with fresh flowers, heart chocolate and love gifts.

Same now in Britain, where young woman used to wake up before sunrise of Valentine’s Day, beliving that the first man they see will be their husband.

In the nordic countries the Love Day is celebrated with red roses, love card and candle light dinners as a part of ancient culture.

In USA this is the most popular festival of love, even if this is a celebration imported from England in the 19th century. The americans not only exchange greetings and gifts with the partner, but also with all the closed people. The greeting cards sold on Valentine’s Day are on the second place after Christmas cards.

In Japan there is a custom of men receiving two types of chocolate gifts from woman. First type called “giri-choco” is for friends and close male with no romantic obligation and second, “honmei-choco”, made by girls themselfs for their love partner, as a statement of true love.

Valentine’s Gift Ideas For Her

Since the holiday season just ended, i thought that only we – the girls – always want to be one step forward when it comes to be on time with the right gift for Valentine’s Day.

But some of you – my male readers – told me, you don’t wanna get the half-right gift for your Valentine, since this special day is a really big deal for us girls and also we – the girls – will for sure get the great-right gift for you.

Well, finding the right gift for Valentine’s Day may be tough, but this year guys, no more chocolates, hearts and flowers! Enough with the cliche Valentine’s Day gifts ideas that you’ll get from the street and flower shops, now let’s make it count this year.

It’s true woman won’t say no to a gift, but the gift on such a day, must come with a meaning.

Behind every successful man there is a woman!

You know what they say: Behind every successful man there is a woman! If that’s your case, since we love perfumes why not make a state out of it. You will, for sure, do the right thing. So choose, depending on the time of the day you’ll offer your gift, a perfume Boss Jour or Nuit pour femme!

A Boss Jour pour femme – so this will be her day. It’s an elegant fragrance inspired by the first light of day.

Or a Boss Nuit pour femme – inspired by the Little Black Dress and what it stands for. Boss Nuit is a wonderful compliment to women, this ultimately feminine and sensual  fragrance is tempting and radiant, just like a glass of champagne.

Time is always important. Why not make a statement buying a watch? But not any watch, go for a Balmain!

Eria Lady Round from Balmain is a classic, so feminine and stylish, a diamond signature of strength and chic Parisian women whom we aspire to emulate. It’s a daily essential, that will make every hour be so full of meaning until the date with the loved one.

Last but not least, a piece of jewelry will always be a manifesto of love and appreciation.

A diamond is a stone that truly states – I love you – in the deepest way.

If is not the moment for a ring, a pair of diamond earrings and pendant will be just the perfect gift.

In fact, the diamond’s symbol of deep, everlasting love, makes it a forever jewelry from the fact that it’s the most resistant stone known on earth, a reflection of your love.

With that being said, i hope i opened the door to inspiration for you guys and i would love to hear what you have chosen for your Valentine.

XOXO
