Love is in the air!
Soon, every store will be filled with people who will buy flowers & chocolates for their loved ones.
I don’t have any special plan for today, just like the previous years of my life. But it’s okay, I thought my purpose is to share facts about Valentine’s day. For this year, I will share 2 important information that I found on Google.
First is the story of Saint Valentine, a Roman priest, who were sentenced in 269 A.D. to a three-part execution of a beating, stoning, and finally decapitation all because of his stand for Christian marriage.1
In my opinion, Saint Valentine’s story is a great reminder that this day is a celebration of love at its purest; and not just any tradition where if you didn’t give anything special to your girlfriend/wife/husband/boyfriend, he/she will never talk to you again. Of course, the latter part is exaggerated. I honestly don’t know how people react when they don’t receive gifts from their loved ones on this day.
Lastly, the places where you couldn’t celebrate Valentine’s day. For couples who love to travel, it’s a must to know the places where you wouldn’t end up in jail just because you celebrate Valentine’s day. Some of the countries that don’t celebrate Valentine’s is: Saudi Arabia, Indonesia, Malaysia, and Iran.2
There are explanations in the articles, you can check it below for later.
Well, that’s all for now… enjoy your day!
