Valentines Presents / January 11, 2019 / Rachel Gates
Of course choosing the right Valentines presents for him and her is important. But if you want a night of romance its just as important to get the movie right on this night of love. Because if you dont you can bet your bottom dollar you wont be getting that "loving feeling." Snuggling up with your sweetheart eating chocolates and sipping wine wont be part of the programme. Anyone can run out and rent a romantic film starring Julia Roberts for Valentines Day. Anyone can stream the latest passion-infused offering from Kate Hudson - or Jennifer Aniston or Drew Barrymore. Anyone can immerse themselves in Pretty Woman Bridget Joness Diary or Romeo and Juliet. But it requires real bottle to sit down with that special lady or gent in your life and take one of these hugely unpleasant choices.
Choose from a handful of pictures or a larger selection of pictures to create exactly the design you want.

This was where young men drew young womens names from a box to commemorate their rite of passage to the god Lupercus. The chooser and chosen would then be paired for one year. These random pairings often led to marriage. The Church of course didnt like the pagan festival so Pope Galasius the bishop of Rome amended this celebration slightly. He filled the box with the names of dead saints instead of girls and allowed both men and women to draw from the box. He believed this would encourage youngsters to copy the ways of the saint for the remainder of the year. On 14th February 496 A.D. Pope Gelasius declared this day to be Saint Valentines Day an official Catholic Holiday. By the early 1700s the United States started celebrating this day of love by swapping love notes and exchanging Valentines gifts for boyfriends girlfriends wives and husbands.
