Valentines day “the day of lovers” is a very special occasion for many people in all ages, not just couples. And even though it’s celebrated all around the world I can, without any doubts, say that hardly anyone actually knows why or where it comes from.

Men, in their early ages, were supposed to draw a note from a box, with a young teenage-girls name on it and as price she was to be his sexual companion for the remaining of the year.

Of course this annoyed many people and one of them was pope Gelasius, who made an attempt to change the tradition. He ordered that instead of drawing the names of young girls the box would contain names of saints which was to be emulated until the year had come to an end.

 First I would love to get flowers, some roses would be nice and then some kind of a surprise, like a romantic dinner and perhaps a trip to the cinema afterwards.

 I would like my partner to take me out on something unexpected, like driving go-carts. That you don’t do every day! And later on some cute-shaped candy to eat while watching a good movie at home.

 Some kind of a present wich has been thought through a lot, a...
