And since we’re on the topic of fun facts, ever wondered how the X became a sign for a kiss?

Well, back in the olden days, X used to represent Christianity, i.e. the cross. It was also used as a signoff on documents. And people would often kiss it as a sign of their oath. The gesture slowly but surely grew to include book, letter and paperwork certification, being referred to as being “sealed with a kiss”.

Back then, it was estimated that a single individual could pay up to $196 for their Valentines. Yes, that includes animal companions.

I have tried doing this for Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day, and Father’s Day the past few years to lift the spirits of my neighbors. It is probably a tradition I will keep trying to do going forward. 

All bouquets were obtained from Walmart where each cost around $4.57 each so while it sort of hit the bank hard I am just not going to eat out the next 2 weeks instead. If it is something that you can do too it is worth it to see everyone’s reaction!

Besides candy, the next most gifted thing are flowers. Over 50 million roses are given on average on Valentine’s Day worldwide. Mother’s Day is the other celebration for flowers.

And it’s also important to pick the appropriate color for the flower, as each color has its own symbolism, like red is for passion and love, and white is for purity.

If you do insist on getting a gift instead of an experience, again get something you both can enjoy. If a tandem bike might be a bit of an overkill (high risk, high reward?) then get a board game. Or get all of the subscriptions to streaming services for one month and binge everything. How’s that for a month-long Valentine’s Day?

I am a 30-year-old female, married, but my husband and I don’t celebrate Valentine’s Day, never have.
