So, Why Do We Celebrate Valentine's Day, anyway? and How We Can Help!
Ask the average person on the street if they know the significance of Valentine’s Day. You’d be surprised at the variety of answers you would gather….it is a fertility ritual; it is a Christian and ancient roman tradition; it is the day of romance; it signifies the beginning of spring; it has its roots in the 1400’s when Valentine, a priest, was beheaded for marrying Christian couples outside of the church; it is a holiday that is symbolized by Cupid, the god of love. etc. etc. etc.
The truth is really a combination of all the above. To really find out the truth about Valentine’s Day, one will come across an array of varied tales and stories that include ALL of the above notions. It seems that this special day is widely rooted in a love-related festival on the 14th of the month because that was the date when Saint Valentine of Rome was made a martyr.
But one thing that everyone agrees upon is that Valentine’s Day is the holiday that provides us with an excuse to express our love to whomever we wish. People write quotes and poems and send gifts of flowers, chocolates, and jewellery to their loved ones. People spend time together, celebrating in their own special way.
So, what does one do for Valentine’s Day? Here are some great ideas that we, at Jeff Walters Jewellers, can help you with….
-stealing his/her ring and having it buffed and cleaned, sized or repaired? Then present it to him/her as if it were the first day you bought it.
