Valentine's Day

Monday 04th February 2019 12:59 EST

Valentine’s Day is here at last and everyone is busy thinking about what to buy for their loved ones. Though the festival commemorates the martyrdom of a Christian saint called St. Valentine, the festival as it is celebrated today, has very little religious significance. 

In present times, Valentine’s Day has assumed a secular and global flavour and is celebrated by people of all castes and communities. It is supposed to be an occasion to display love, affection and care for our families, friends and romantic partners. But today, it does not seem that way anymore, for families and friends are mostly wiped off the list, leaving just the partner in it.

It is actually a day to be happy and to spend it with the people you love and care.
