There’s something magical about the month of February. Some say that because it’s the shortest month of the year, pay checks come quicker. Others attribute the appeal of this month to Cupid himself. In fact all across Britain and beyond, February is associated with Valentine’s Day. And with this association come all manner of cute and cuddly teddy bears, sweet and savoury delights and flowers aplenty. Families across the United Kingdom, and not just young lovers, have taken to this traditional day of love in their droves. Indeed it has been commercialized to the nth degree, but there’s something uniquely charming about splashing out on the ones you love. This much-anticipated day is marked with an eagerness and anticipation unlike any other. Contrast this with 14th-century Britain when the townsfolk considered February the 14th as the date that birds paired up. The analogy now includes all of us, and it looks set to continue well into the future.
February is the Month of Love
14 February is certainly a day to raise your glasses in celebration, but the short-lived nature of the day gave rise to a month-long extension of the Valentine’s spirit. Nowadays the theme of February the Month of Love is ubiquitous at florists, restaurants and fun and friendly entertainment websites. Supermarkets are peppered with helium balloons displaying Cupid, hearts, cuddly characters and Valentines messages. Entire aisles are dedicated to heart-shaped chocolates, pink and red cuddly creatures and a wealth of love-inspired greetings cards. The spirits of St. Valentine is alive and well most everywhere you look. The joy of sharing in the moment evokes the artist within, inspiring poetry, romance and good cheer. The self-same spirit is encapsulated in the many promotional offers that are readily available to folks across the UK. Fortunately, folks can enjoy the month of love across the spectrum. You’re likely to enjoy ongoing deals at your favourite bistro, or perhaps playing an instant game like 75 ball. The choices abound and this certainly bodes well for those with the Valentine spirit.
