The Traditions of Valentines Day February 14th

The day traditionally observed as being for lovers is Valentine’s Day on 14th February, a time when those romantically inclined or hopeful of romance exchange gifts and cards.

Mid-February has been associated with young love since the time of the Greeks and Romans. The Romans held their lupercalian fertility rites in honour of Juno. The goddess of women and marriage, while the Greek goddess was known as Hera.

The Christian church, however, linked this time with Saint Valentine who was executed in 269 AD for holding weddings for young soldiers against the Emperor Claudius’s edict. (The emperor believed marriage would impair their fighting spirit).

Love Poems

Deep As The Rose Is Red


I'll give you my heart; I'll open it up,

Will you listen to its small still voice?

For soft and quiet my heart will speak

To the one I'll call my wife.


Did you hear it dear? Did you listen well?

Do you understand what it said?

For deep is the love that it speaks to you,

Deep as the rose is red.


So, take my heart and treat it well

And forever in this life,

Come walk with me, your hand in mine,

The one I'll call my wife.

Love Poem

What is Love?

Love is...

What makes a weak man brave

And a king step off his throne

Good times, bad times

Easy times, tough times

It comes in an instant

And lasts three days after forever

That's what love is.

What I Love About You

The sparkle in your eye,

The warmth of your skin.

Your breath on my neck,

That quivers within.


The touch of your hand,

The smell of your hair.

The kindness in your smile,

That strength in your stare.


Your kiss on my lips,

Your body near mine.

The stroke of your touch,

That feeling inside.


The sound of your voice,

Compassion in your embrace.

The serenity in your stride,

The power in your face.


The calming of your presence,

The beating of your heart.

The promise of tomorrow,

That we may never part.


The beauty of your kiss,

and that magic in your touch.

It is for all these reasons and more,

Why I love you so much.

Wishing you all a Happy Valentine's Day

I would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a very happy and loveable Valentine’s Day on February 14th and I hope that you receive your special Valentine’s Day card and gift from the one you love.

Don't forget to give out some love on February 14th, Valentine’s Day to the people you love or by sending them a Valentines card full of love poems and quotes and maybe even some red roses and chocolates.

There is still plenty of time for you to make those heart shaped chocolates and biscuits for your loved one. She/he would love that personnel touch I know I would.

You could even just spend some quality time with your loved ones on Valentine’s Day away from all the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Sometimes a little quality time alone can speak volumes in a relationship especially if you, like most people, have a busy lifestyle.

Hi Viking, yes you said that well, it does "encourage" people to thing of Love and their feelings towards others and more love in the world can go a long way, nothing wrong with anything that brings out the best in people. More good 'energy' flying around is what we all need..

Oh Easter, yes my favourite time of the year, its means summer is on the way and all the flowers start to bloom..

Thanks for taking the time to visit, ps Loving your hubs, great reading in them, keep up the good work..

Very good CMHypno, LOL, and you 'will' receive your red roses and heart shaped chocolates for sure, sure who could refuse a request like that :-)

I was reading your profile and the saying you quoted from Meister Eckhart---- "If the only prayer you say in your lifetime is 'Thank You' then that is enough"---- Oh that is such a nice quote and so true. I am not a 'religous' person but I do believe in the power of 'thanks' for the good things that come our way. I know everyones definition of 'good things' are different, depending on their lifestyles, but a 'thank you' and a little appreciation and Lots of Love goes a long way to healing the spirit...

So Valentines day is on the way and its red roses chocolates and lots of love for everyone :-)
