“All you need is love. But a little chocolate now and then doesn’t hurt.” Charles M. Shultz
We agree on both counts. But, what is the true meaning of Valentine’s Day?
It originated as a Christian feast day honoring an early martyr named Saint Valentine. Later, through international folk traditions, Valentine’s Day became a significant cultural, religious, and commercial celebration of romance and love in many regions of the world. In the United States, we celebrate the annual salute to love on February 14th. In recent years, many new variations of Valentine’s Day have emerged such as Galatine’s Day, a celebration of women’s friendships.
This year, put a new spin on an old tradition.
Small hearts. Big messages.
Host a Galentine’s Day dinner with all the fixings. The cute hearts are a reminder of childhhood for most of us. So spread around the love with stylish napkins on the side for an inviting place setting.
Roses are associated with Valentine’s Day; at this time of the year they have to be brought in from a warmer climate. How about a multicolored primrose? They are locally-grown in hot houses and flourish in the winter months; they might just be the perfect flower to send this holiday.
And who doesn’t love a sassy stuffed animal? Trolls are also reminiscient of my 70s childhood, but these days everything old is new again. Host a V-Day party! Why not take the fun (memories) up a notch with your favorite troll character.
