Valentine’s Day.

The day that causes a divide.

While some people love the day.

Spending it with their partner, showing their adoration for them…

Others see it simply as another day.

After all shouldn’t you show your love all year round?

But what really is the meaning behind Valentine’s Day?

Valentine’s Day might just be a big corporate scheme, but it doesn’t have to be.

It’s more than that.

It’s no surprise that card and flower companies exploit Valentine’s Day for all it’s worth, but the day itself happens to have a rich history.

Who is St. Valentine?

It all started in the third century…
With a guy called Claudius the second; he banned his people from getting married because he believed it made his soldiers weaker.

Someone needs a hug.

One of Claudius’ Roman priests – St. Valentine – felt this was out of order, and began marrying the soldiers behind his back.

He did him dirty.

When Claudius found out about St. Valentine’s betrayal, he was sentenced to jail. Funnily enough, this is where he met the love of his life. Ironic, right?

This was obviously forbidden.

The love of his life turned out to be the jailer’s daughter, which was obviously forbidden.

Things escalated.

St. Valentine was sentenced to death. It’s what he did before his execution that created the tradition of Valentine’s Day.

He sent a love letter.

Signed “your Valentine,” just before being executed on February the 14th.

It went on to signify the beginning of spring.

Nowadays, it’s a way for people to express their love and gratitude for the special people in their lives.

It’s crazy how much people spend.

According to the National Retail Federation, people are expected to spend an average of $161 on Valentine’s day.  

That’s a lot of money.

You don’t have to spend hundreds of dollars to show you care.

In fact this year, you could spend just $3.

And send your valentine the sweetest gift of them all.

A heart shaped donut.

As Krispy Kreme has released heart shaped donuts for Valentines Day.

The Valentines donuts are a collaboration with confectionery brand Swizzels and are very limited.

A selection of twelve, the heart-shaped treats have different icons and messages including “My hero,” “BFF,” and “I love you.”

The flavours include strawberry and sherbet, chocolate Kreme and lemon and sherbet.

And for those feeling creative, they are even offering the opportunity decorate your own with their “Love Creations Kit”.

The collaboration also offers fans the chance to win an exclusive collector’s item.
