St. Valentine’s Day
Saint Valentine’s Day is a holiday for people who fell in love. This day they present each other with valentines – greeting cards with poems to declare their love. Manufactured cards, decorated with cupids and hearts, appeared near the end of the eighteenth century. A purchased valentine became the most popular way to declare love during the early decades of the nineteenth century. Miniature works of art, the cards were usually hand painted and were often lavishly decorated with laces, silk or satin, flowers (made from the feathers of tropical birds), glass filigrees, gold-leaf or even perfumed sachets!

Valentine for Singles?
Many singles go to the extent of calling Valentine's Day a ‘Singles Awareness Day' because they day reminds them of their unattached status. We say, though, that the festival is celebrated to express love to anyone we are close to. One should simply take the opportunity to have a nice time and especially so if you are far away from home. So get your colleagues, buddies or expat friends and celebrate.

If you want to declare your love the romantic way, here is a poem:
You've given me a reason
For smiling once again,
You've filled my life with peaceful dreams
and you've become my closest friend.
You've shared your heartfelt secrets
And your trust you've given me,
You showed me how to feel again
To laugh, and love, and see.
If life should end tomorrow
And from this world I should part,
I shall be forever young
For you have touched my heart
