"If the Sun refused to shine, I would still be loving you,

When mountains crumble to the sea, there will still be you and me.

     -Led Zeppelin

 


Just like the above lyric expresses the earnest love and affection, February 14th, celebrated as Valentine's Day, is considered as the most romantic day of the year. This is the day where many of us show our affection for our loved ones with cards, flowers, chocolates and gifts. This is also the day when love is confessed, accepted and friendships are cherished.

 

As the whole world celebrates Valentine's Day today and is on spree on spreading love, warmth, positivity, sincerity and even butterflies in your stomach;have we ever thought about the origin of this actual day?

 

 Fourteen Facts on Valentine's Day

 

St Valentine, a priest from Rome, was arrested after secretly marrying Christian Couples. As helping the Christians was considered a crime, St Valentines was imprisoned and was condemned to death by Emperor Claudius's II. While in the prison, St Valentine fell in love with Jailer's daughter, Julia, and sent her a love letter signed, "From your Valentine, on February 14th,269 AD, the day of his execution as a goodbye.

 

After St Valentine was buried, Julia, the daughter of his jailer, planted an almond tree with pink blossoms near his grave. The almond tree today is the symbol of lasting friendship and love.

 

St Valentine's skull is housed and adorned in flowers in Rome and is on display in Basillica of St Maria in Cosmedin.

 

The oldest surviving Valentine poem was written by a prison- entrapped pinning lover: Charles, Duke of Orleans. He wrote it for his wife in 1415 while being confined in the Tower of London after being captured in the Battle of Agincourt.


The feast of St Valentine of February 14 was established in 496 AD by Pope Gelasius and at present celebrated as Valentine's Day.  

 

In the middle ages, superstition said that if you were single, you would end up marrying the first single person of opposite sex that you met on Valentine's Day.

 

Back in 1537, King Henry VIII declared by Royal Charter that Valentine's Day would be a public holiday.

 

In the Middle Ages, young men and women drew names to see who would be their Valentine. They would wear this name pinned on to their sleeves for a week for everyone to see. This was the origin to the expression 'wearing your heart on your sleeves'.


The first Valentine's Day Candy Box was invented by Richard Cadbury in the late 1800s. 

 

Now a heavily commercialised day laden with expectations, about 1 billion Valentine's card are exchanged each year making it the second largest seasonal card sending time of the year.

 

 The most popular flower on Valentine's Day is a single red rose surrounded with baby's breath. The red rose was also flower of Venus, the Roman goddess of Love.

 

According to a study, 73 per cent of people who buy flowers on this day are men whilst only 23 per cent are women.


In Norfolk, England, Valentines Eve is celebrated by the mystical figure of Jack Valentine, knocking on back doors and leaving gifts for adults and kids alike. Jack Valentine is known as old father Valentine or Old Mother Valentine.

 

Every Valentine's day, the Italian city of Verona, where Shakespeare lovers Romeo and Juliet lived, receives about 1000 letters addressed to Juliet.

 

So to everyone out there- single, coupled or complicated, as it's the day of love and while you are all invested on giving love, showing gratitude and appreciation to all those people who have touched your life with every possible way.

Valentines Day is here and whether its time to rejoice or not well that's upon you but don't worry the Crazy Creatives are here to give your celebration the zest of energy it needs and yes all are welcomed ! When we say all it means ALL, not only couples.


All the Crazy Creatives, well mainly girls and smart ladies are preparing the celebrations before the IF pyaare log ( lovely IF people) come to the big hall.The atmosphere is already on full swing.

A while later, it's time to open the curtains and let the magic begin.

Shreya comes first, dressed in a pink color dress and looking gracious as ever and gives the small introduction of the play.

"Yeh ishq naheen aasan, bass itna samajh leejiye,

Ek aag Ka dariyaa hai, aur doobke jaana hai."

 "Well, love is always so complicated, you know, it's like you and your partner always fight on small things",said Pooja.The public started giggling.

Kalyani comes to the stage as it's her turn, wearing a beautiful green saari "Teri meri meri teri prem kahaani hai mushkil, do lafzon mein yeh bayaan naaho paaye...ek... "

 "Ek lakda ko dekha to aisa laga", said Pooja while smiling.

 "Do you think pyaar aisa hota hai ? and plus you've got the lyrics wrong sweety", smiled Yuvika.

 "I have to agree on that, you know love is not always like what we see in movies. It's not innocent as it looks at the first place. Pyaar is sometimes paired up with nafrat (hate)" , said Subha.

 "Tere ishq pe marjawaan", Sam started to sing.

 "Love can go to that extent too?" Asked a startled Arthy.

 "Or it might get intense like Love me like you do love love love me like you do", sang Appy. 


The temperature is seriously getting higher and the public is amused by seeing all the Crazy Creatives trying to describe love and all the emotions this feeling can bring.   

Shreya comes back again.

"Aankhein band ki toh nigaahon mein unhi ki tasweer thi,

Kaash ke aankh kholke bhi yeh nazaara dekh paate."


As the play is about to end, Kalyani arrives, with her white dress giving the special final effect on everyone.

"In the dark night when I stare at the sky,

Its darkness fail, I only see shimmering light!

This light of stars is what you brought in my life,

When I look at you a crazy hope runs in my mind,

My heart beats your melodies!

My breath speaks your stories!

Tickling wind senses your touch!

When you aren't about I miss you very much!

Why this sudden change in me I wonder?

But when I sink into you there is nothing more to ponder!

I don't know whether I could ever claim you mine!

But I am only of the reflection in mirror you find!

What new language my eyes seem to know?

Did you ever guess it when you looked into them low?

I close them to sense you,

I open these twins to find you

My day, my night

In my thoughts, in my mind

Its only and ONLY you I find!"

The red velvet curtains are down and everyone is clapping.


Love is always difficult to describe, sometimes you can find words or sometimes you just feel the emotions racing over your whole body.

Dear members, now it's your turn to show love to the ones you love, it can be your hubby, your boyfriend, your friend or someone from your family. Actually Love goes beyond Valentines Day right?


While commenting on the thread please reply to the following questions.

Your favourite Love song?

Your favourite Love Story?

Your dream date?

If you had to say one line to someone you love, which line would it be?

Romantic or unromantic?


To finish with please share something which according to you describes love. It can be a shayari, lyrics from a song, a pic, a gif or a video.

Enjoy, be romantic and Happy Valentines Day to all.
