What is love?

According to the dictionary, love is:

  • Deep affection or fondness for person or thing
  • Beloved one
  • Sexual passion
  • Very strong affection
  • Great liking

That is for people who want an idea of what love is. Each person has various thoughts on love. According to me, it's a special feeling that one experiences. That feeling can only be brought be people who care for the well-being and happiness of that particular person.

People tend to get confused with love and romance. Roman is a special way to show love to a special person.

How do you show your love to someone on Valentine's Day?

Various people show their love and celebrate Valentine's Day through several ways. Some people like to send messages. Some people like to send or give flowers and chocolates to their dear ones. Kids at school make Valentine's Day cards for everyone in class. These are some ways. Most people like to take a special person outside for s dinner or a movies.

I think that Valentine's Day can be celebrated by telling the people you love, how much you love them and why they are special to you. Their hearts will be truly touched.

Why do we celebrate Valentine's Day?

This is indeed the million dollar question! Lots of people enjoy the holiday without knowing why they celebrate it. This holiday does have a dark history. Historians say that despite what they found, it is still murky about why it is celebrated. It is believed to be celebrated in the honor of a certain Roman person known as St. Valentine. It is also often associated with the cute, chubby, naked angel that we call 'Cupid', who is traced to his Greek roots of 'Eros', the Greek god of love.
