Saint Valentine's day

Every February, across the world, presents,candy, flowers, and gifts are exchanged between loved ones, all in the name of St. Valentine.


Valentine's Day started in the time of the Roman Empire. In ancient Rome, February 14th was a holiday to honour Juno. Juno was the Queen of the Roman Gods and Goddesses.

Lives of young boys and girls were separate. However, one of the customs of the young people was name drawing. On the festival of Lupercalia the Roman girls names were written on papers and put into jars. Each young man had to draw a girl's name from the jar and then be partners until the end of the festival with this girl.

My opinion

I think that give presents to the person what you love, is right, but i think we should do it every day.Also i think that is a good tactic of the department store.
