I can safely say never bothered with valentines day as never been bothered about it as a teenager i used to get embarrassed about it but deep down was not that bothered !!! about anything like that not that i am a prude but but just not interested i just like to have people as both sexes nothing more .
I have never liked human touch Evan off parents i t is only recently that i have come to the conclusion that i am asexual in other words don’t give a damn about sex or relationships !!!
This is not to say I don’t fancy someone as sometime go woooah he’s nice but when ever got close to someone who I see as a friend and nothing more I back off as soon as they want any kind of physical relationship
I am on the whole quite happy being me but the world evolves around families and that is what I will never have but a day with my nieces makes me realize i was not cut out for motherhood
so been looking at were ST Valentines came in to being and the history of it feel free to skip this !!!!
I learnt with interest that Chaucer reckoned that today was not just the day that us lot get together but the birds of the feathered variety get together as well i have not spotted this but been in bed most of day not well so that maybe why !!!!
today I have also learnt that February the 14 Th is the day we celebrate 3 saints day but no i have no idea who they are either do u !!
THE MOST COMMON story is of a Roman priest and think a Dr person was beheaded on valentines day in A in Mexico it is a day of mourning so this is maybe why !!!
It was not until AD496 Gelasius began to get all romantic mushiness about so now we know who to blame but maybe something to do with stopping the Roman feast of Lupercalia which Christians celebrated on february the 13 to 15th when men ran about in loincloths and wolf masks hitting people with goat skins !!!! ummm well u can see why the pope wanted to stop this !!!
I wonder who else in the world celebrates today well Thailand obviously does as they invented rose scented stamps in 2002 but the big question is how long does the smell last compared with the real thing !!!!
Although they are not keen in Saudi Arabia as in 2008 the commission for the promotion for virtue and prevention of vice banned red roses as they wanted to make a stand a s decided that roses encouraged affairs !!!! umm imagine what the flower people would say if that happened here !!!! as 46% of roses are sent on valentines day although i am always skeptical about this kind of info how the hell do they know !!!
the amount spent is 39.57 for men and 22 quid and 64 pence for women does this mean spent by the woman/ or man or for the woman/ man oh well who cares the shops will be getting rid of the cards and other drival for the next big marketing deal easter just glad i dont waste my money !!! glad to be me ha
