Happy valentines to all you guys. Valentines Days is fast approaching, this coming 14th day of February is celebrates the hearts day or the day of romance. It is celebrated in many countries around the world, although it is not a public holiday in most of them. Based on my research Valentine’s Day is a symbols that are used today include the heart shaped outline, doves, and the figure of the winged Cupid. Since the 19th century, handwritten valentines have given way to mass produced greeting cards. Anyhow, Valentines Day costumes developed in early modern England and spread through the Anglosphere in the 19th century. In the later 20th and early 21st centuries, these customs spread to other countries, but their effects has been more limited that those of Halloween or than aspects of Christmas, such as Santa Claus. Due to a concentrated marketing effort, Valentine’s Day is celebrated in some East Asian counties with Chinese and South Koreans spending the most money on Valentines gifts.
The photo below is my friend Jessica and I; she visited to me last Feb. 1, 2016 in my house. We already missed to each other because it’s almost 3 years to meet each other again. She lives at 11am in Manila so she traveled for almost 5 hours including traffic, she came here at 4pm in Pagbilao, province of Quezon. Because the Valentine is coming, we already drank 2 bottle of red horse. Off course we don’t’ forget to take a photo. I want to say thank you Jessica for visiting me. Until next time 🙂 .
