Happy Valentine’s Day to all lovers of the world! Have a great romantic day! :-)
My gift to you is a bouquet of roses:
Rose is one of the most popular flower and one of the most powerful symbol of Valentine’s Day. Since time immemorial rose flower has been a favorite of poets and romantics at heart. For them, the lovely rose stand for beauty, passion and love.
There is an interesting story behind the legend of Valentine’s Day Rose. It is said that once a beautiful maiden by the name of Rodanthe was pursued by a number of impassioned suitors. In their desperate pursuit the lovers broke the doors of Rodanthe’s house. This enraged goddess Diana. She turned Rodanthe into a flower and her suitors into thorns.
According to a popular legend in Rome once Cupid was carrying a vase of sweet nectar to the Gods on Mount Olympus and some nectar spilled on the ground. From the spot where the nectar fell emerged the beautiful Rose flower.
An interesting point to notice is that if the letters of the word ‘rose’ are rearranged, it comes out to Eros – the God of Love. Red roses are also considered to be a symbol of love and passion and the favorite flower of Venus – the Goddess of Love.
Just see here how Terri Moore prepared a gorgeous one:

HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY!!! HAPPY HEART DAY!!!
A variety of interesting Valentine’s Day traditions developed over time.
For example, hundreds of years ago in England, children dressed up as adults on Valentine’s Day and went singing holiday verses from door to door.
In Wales, wooden love spoons, carved with key, keyhole and heart designs, were given as gifts.
The gift of flowers on Valentine’s Day probably dates to the early 1700s when Charles II of Sweden brought the Persian poetical art called ”the language of flowers” to Europe.
The rose, representing love, is probably the only flower with a meaning that is universally understood. The red rose remains the most popular flower bought by men in the United States for their sweethearts.

What is love?
There isn’t one true definition of Love.
Love is a combination of feelings torward another person.
Love is not wanting to go anywhere without someone.
Love is when you give your attention, your time, and your focus to someone without needing anything in return.
Love is when we want someone to feel good in all ways, physically, mentally and emotionally.
Love is when you feel like you’re one in the same with the person you love. You lose all your inhibitions, and don’t have a care in the world as long as you’re with the one you love.
Love is a deep, tender, ineffable feeling of affection and solicitude toward a person, such as that arising from kinship, recognition of attractive qualities, or a sense of underlying oneness.

Did you know that…
Around 12th Century people were not aware the function of heart was to circulate blood inside the human body.
What they knew was that heart begins to beat faster when a person is upset or excited. They, therefore, derived that heart was the seat of emotions and feelings.
Poets too eulogized the role of heart in feelings of love and romance and over the years this make believe connection between heart and love became deep seated in the minds of people.
Today, even though it has been scientifically proved that emotions come from the brain, heart remains a powerful symbol of love and Valentine’s Day.
Make a unique gift for your sweet Valentine this year.

The heart is the quintessential symbol for love during Valentine’s. It also symbolizes the significance of giving your heart to someone. A heart being pierced by Cupid’s arrow means when someone gives their heart, they always run the risk of being rejected or hurt in the end.
Cupid is a small mischieveous angel that has his roots in Roman mythology. Cupid was the son of Venus — the Roman goddess of love. It is said that anyone hit by Cupid’s arrow did not die, but rather fell in love.
This homemade heart box with Cupid, rose, feathers, pearls and ribbons is a pretty and elegant Valentine gift of its own indeed.

The word comes from medieval England’s All Hallows’ eve (Old Eng. hallow=”saint”).
However, many of these customs predate Christianity, going back instead to Celtic practices associated with Nov. 1-the beginning of winter and the Celtic new year.
Witches and other evil spirits were believed to roam the earth on this evening, playing tricks on human beings to mark the season of diminishing sunlight.
Bonfires were lit, offerings were made of dainty foods and sweets, and people would disguise themselves as one of the roaming spirits, to avoid demonic persecution.
Survivals of these early practices can be found in countries of Celtic influence today, such as the United States where children go from door to door in scary costumes demanding “trick or treat”.

But it’s not easy…
Switching from the laid-back fun in the sun of summer to rules, homework, and routines can be a big jump for parents and children alike. The transition from summer fun to school rules can stress out kids. But with a little preparation and the right attitude, it doesn’t have to be so hard.

As a child, you must have rushed to get your hands on a delicious frozen treat whenever you heard the ice cream truck drive by. Ice cream trucks were a source of frosty happiness.
Vibrant stickers of assorted, frosty ice cream treats were strewn across the truck’s sides, seeming so real and tasty, our mouths watered in anticipation.
There were chocolate nut cones, ice cream sandwiches and assorted ice pops in every flavor. Strawberry Shortcakes, Chocolate Eclairs and Cherry Bombs to name just a few…
And there was an ice cream of all – the Buried Treasure!
It was called the Buried Treasure because you had to eat all the raspberry ice cream to discover the “treasure” deep inside.
An imprint on the plastic stick! It might be a lion, a dog, or even a funny clown. Whatever it was, it was well worth the wait!
Bring back sweet old memories, and make a nice Ice Cream Truck Gift Box for your sister, brother, best friend…
