Valentine’s Day

Valentine's DayValentine’s day or as we call it in Sweden, “Alla hjärtans dag”  (every hearts day), is a tradition that we celebrate all over the world every year on the 14th of february. The name and the tradition is said that it has it’s origin from the Saint Valentine that lived sometime in the early years of Rome, but no one knows exactly who he was or what he have done or why we celebrate this day.  think that this day has been growing to what it is mostly because there is a lot of money to earn o it, but of course it has some kind of background to, just like Christmas and all the other traditions that we have.

Valentine's DayValentine’s day is a day that we celebrate with the ones that we love and care about and it is also a time were we just spend time to think of those that means something to us. Lovers often buy presents to each other or do something romantic together, friends may send a card or flowers  or just spend time together. When I was younger we used to write “Happy Valentine’s Day” at little heart-shaped cards and give them to every one in our class, and I think that it was a very sweet thing to do and it made everyone happy to read those little cards. now I just send a text message to my friends and family to wish them a happy Valentine.

Valentine's DayOf course there is many ways to celebrate this day but there are also many people who don’t want to celebrate it at all. And that’s very sad because I think that this is a day is a day were everyone should be happy and appreciate  all the good things and people that they have in their lives.  But well,  that’s just my vision of this day.

Hope you have a happy Valentine’s day!
