Valentines Day festival gained much popularity during the Middle Ages. Lovers began to celebrate the day by exchanging love notes and simple gifts such as flowers.
The idea of linking Valentine’s Day with love in Middle Ages was strengthened by the notion that birds began to look for mate during this time.
During the Middle Ages, it was commonly believed in France and England that birds mating season began from February 14. This popular notion added to the idea that the middle of the February celebration of Valentine’s Day be celebrated as a day of love and romance.
Fourteenth and fifteenth centuries English and French poets and litterateurs through their romantic verses further promoted the concept of linking Valentine’s day with romantic love.

Romantic Paris is one of the best cities in the world for couples.
Everyone knows about the Eiffel Tower, but there are two other ways to get high with your honey. The Arc de Triomphe and Notre Dame both provide stunning views of the city.
There are few better places to put your arms around your lover than atop these two attractions.
Some would even argue you get a better view, because the Eiffel Tower is so tall the city is too small from that height.
And at Notre Dame, you get the bonus of being close to the gothic gargoyles.
Paris is filled with beautiful gardens, and all make an unbelievably romantic setting. Luxembourg Gardens, in particular, is a great spot for couples, and is adjacent to the breathtaking Luxembourg Castle.
If you are planning to prepare a romantic homemade gift for your sweetheart, see Monika’s beautiful Paris Gift Box to inspire you:

April 21, Husband Appreciation Day
If your husband always remembers Sweetest Day and makes sure to schedule trips around your Valentine’s Day plans, we have a holiday for you: Husband Appreciation Day.
As we enter into marriage, we may wonder how we ever lived life without our mate. We’re focused on each other, and that makes us close.
However, the longer we’re married, our focus tends to turn to jobs, bills, or children and less on each other. Unfortunately, this causes many marriages to turn cold and some eventually die.
Have you ever wondered how people stay married for 30, 40, or more years? Do you want your marriage to last a lifetime?
The key is to stay focused on your mate. Here is a great way for you to show your husband your love.
Prepare a Love Box for him and fill it with
ROMANTIC MESSAGES AND LOVE YOU QUOTES FOR 365+1 DAYS OF THE YEAR.
He should read only 1 each day.
A Love Box is something you make, for example a gift box with embroidered hearts on it:
Beautiful cards with 365+1 loving quotations can be downloaded and printed from here:
Husband Appreciation Day is just a date on the calendar, but the love you and your significant other share is something worth celebrating all year long.

Happy Great Lover’s Day!
April 2nd Great Lover’s Day marking the birth of Casanova, the legendary lover, in 1725.
What is love?
It is one of the most difficult questions for the mankind.
Centuries have passed by, relationships have bloomed and so has love. But no one can give the proper definition of love.
To some ‘Love is friendship set on fire’ for others ‘Maybe love is like luck. You have to go all the way to find it.’
No matter how you define it or feel it, love is the eternal truth in the history of mankind.
Be together, share your joy and sorrow, understand each other, provide space to each other, but always be there for each others need. And surely love will blossom to strengthen your relationship with your matter of affection.
See instructions on the blog of Creative Itch:
Fill your Heart Box with

There’s no place like home, oh, there’s no place like home!
/John Howard Payne: Home, Sweet Home/
