Valentine’s Day started in the time of the Roman Empire. In ancient Rome, February 14th was a holiday to honour Juno the Queen of the Roman Gods and Goddesses. The Romans also knew her as the Goddess of women and marriage. The following day, February 15th, began the Feast of Lupercalia.

Today February 14 has become the date for exchanging love messages and a celebration of St. Valentine, the patron saint of lovers. The date is marked by sending poems and simple gifts, such as flowers, to loved ones and secret loves. By far, Valentine’s Day Flowers are the most popular gift today. Customs vary across the globe on how lovers celebrate this special day so out of the many, I have chosen just two examples.

In Spain, it is customary for husbands to send their wives bouquets of roses and for courting couples to exchange gifts on Valentine’s Day.

In Italy, Valentine’s Day was once celebrated as a Spring Festival, held in the open air, where young people would gather in tree arbors or ornamental gardens to listen to music and the reading of poetry, but in the Piedmontese City of Turin, it was the custom for betrothed couples to announce their engagements on February 14. For some days ahead of time, the shops would be decorated and filled with all manner of chocolates and delicious sweets.

  • My good friend Dario has just sent me the link for the song 'Vivo per Lei' and I loved it so much I put a copy on my Face Book page and sent it to all my friends – and especially the ladies I'm friends with – about 3400 I think, wishing them all a Happy Valentines Day….. and I wish the same to all of you – and especially the Ladies who read this message 🙂

    Our mutual friend Vance, forwarded this lovely piece of music to me today, I was spellbound… was an excellent start to St Valentine's Day!! g
    Grazie mille xx Sam

    • Mille grazie to you and our mutual friend Vance. I am so glad you enjoyed the Music on the video with Bocelli and the lovely Weiss; a super combination. Although I must say I am impressed by Don Vance’s claim to have contact with about 3400 people, mostly women. Even the gallant Signor Casanova in his autobiography was more modest in his claims. It is more than impressive( Impressionante) don’t you think?
      I hope you had a lovely Valentines day and that your “innammorato” sent you many roses”
      Kind regards

    Hello Dario, Lovely reply, thank you. I played the track time and again yesterday, (and each time it improved !!) I was so inspired, that I passed it over to friends and family, a perfect reminder to feel the romance of the day, for those who may have forgotten.
