Although Valentine’s Day can be traced back to Saints in very early history, we will not explore that Valentine chapter here.
What Valentine’s Day is now, is a day set aside for the showing of love and affections to one another.
It’s a huge day for flowers, and candy gifts, especially Roses, and those Heart shaped boxes of Chocolates. Valentine cards are also huge; don’t forget!
When you buy Roses for your wife or sweetheart, do you know what the different colors mean? Here's a refresher.

So for Valentine’s Day, you cannot go wrong with Red Roses. They are a popular gift, all women like Red Roses. When it comes to that Big Red Heart, filled with Chocolates, that is usually a better gift if there are little ones at home to help eat those calorie laden treats.
