The day of love originates from the European saint, Valentine. It began as a Christian tradition which is gradually being taken up around the world, largely, I might suggest, because it is very profitable for business. Red is the colour of Valentines’ Day (and of love).
I was out shopping today and saw that a shop was promoting Valentines’ Day presents for your mum and dad, but I think that’s taking it a little too far. What do you think?
Anyway, Happy Valentines’ Day!
