Heart of the Matter: Valentine’s Day Style

Valentine’s Day may be one of the most difficult of holidays to navigate. You’re either for it or against it, depending upon your current relationship status. I’m all for embracing it with or without a partner and celebrating big time any holiday that basically revolves around chocolate and champagne.

Whether alone or paired up, indulge yourself in with a touch of red, a fabulous handbag, something flirty, silky and sexy or a tube of killer red lipstick. Your current love will thank you—whether man or beast (a dog is a woman’s best friend!) Show a little Valentine’s Day style for said partner and/or yourself.

Here are a few somewhat obscure, fun facts regarding Valentine’s Day.

  • In addition to the U.S., Valentine’s Day is celebrated in Canada, Mexico, United Kingdom, France, Australia, Denmark and Italy.
  • The most fantastic gift of love is the Taj Mahal in India. It was built by Mughal Emperor Shahjahan as a memorial to his wife.
  • In the 1800s, doctors commonly advised their heartbroken patients to eat chocolate, claiming it would soothe their pain. To this day, many women find comfort in a box of chocolates when dealing with heartbreak.
  • A love knot is a symbol of undying love, as its twisting loops have no beginning and no end. In the past, they were made of ribbon or drawn on paper to prove one’s eternal love.
  • Every Valentine’s Day, the Italian city of Verona, where Shakespeare’s lovers Romeo and Juliet lived, receives about 1,000 letters addressed to Juliet.
  • About 3 percent of pet owners will give Valentine’s Day gifts to their pets.
  • 220,000 is the average number of wedding proposals on Valentine’s Day each year.
  • In the U.S., 64 percent of men do not make plans in advance for a romantic Valentine’s Day with their sweethearts.
