Hello to all the lovely members of India-Forums
in the air on India-forums as its the valentine week..
the week of love...here is a small information of each day from feb 7-feb 14




7 Feb--is the Rose Day
8 Feb- is the Propose Day
9 Feb is the Chocolate Day
10 Feb is the Teddy Day
11 Feb is the Promise Day
12 Feb is the Kiss Day
13 Feb is the Hug Day
14 Feb  is the VALENTINE'S DAY







We all celebrate feb 14 as the love day ..also known as the Valentine day..A day you spend with your loved ones..but ever thought knowing the history of it..

In reality what happend on this day is.. St. Valentine, a Roman who was martyred for refusing to give up Christianity. He died on February 14, 269 A.D. St. Valentine left a farewell note for the jailer's daughter, who had become his friend, and signed it "From Your Valentine".

Since that day feb 14 became the date to exchange love messages,gifts,flowers ..etc



Valentine Day Traditions


In Wales wooden love spoons were carved and given as gifts on February 14th. Hearts, keys and keyholes were favourite decorations on the spoons. The decoration meant, "You unlock my heart!"

In the Middle Ages, young men and women drew names from a bowl to see who their valentines would be. They would wear these names on their sleeves for one week. To wear your heart on your sleeve now means that it is easy for other people to know how you are feeling.

In some countries, a young woman may receive a gift of clothing from a young man. If she keeps the gift, it means she will marry him.

Some people used to believe that if a woman saw a robin flying overhead on Valentine's Day, it meant she would marry a sailor. If she saw a sparrow, she would marry a poor man and be very happy. If she saw a goldfinch, she would marry a millionaire.


A love seat is a wide chair. It was first made to seat one woman and her wide dress. Later, the love seat or courting seat had two sections, often in an S-shape. In this way, a couple could sit together -- but not too closely!


Think of five or six names of boys or girls you might marry, As you twist the stem of an apple, recite the names until the stem comes off. You will marry the person whose name you were saying when the stem fell off.

Pick a dandelion that has gone to seed. Take a deep breath and blow the seeds into the wind. Count the seeds that remain on the stem. That is the number of children you will have.


If you cut an apple in half and count how many seeds are inside, you will also know how many children you will have.

Now after telling you all about the valetine day and the history and all..my question is


"What memories you have with this day?"

"Is the day special for you or any other commercial holiday?"

"Any special gifts or plans you have for the day?"

valentines day what the hell is this for i  feel sorry for those who fall in love because one day or another the word love will turn into the word hatred and drugs( even prescribed) so why waste your life for thing call love that has no meaning to it because love is suppose to be trust, promises, loyalty but nowday people often believe in hurting their love even some that we might consider our best heros including actors plus in india we never had this thing called valentines day ya people did fall in love but valentines day was like nothing but with india becoming like USA i feel like i will be stranger in my own country when i go back. thanks to this modern day culture especially american culture nothing against america but just the culture that has gone nuts
