Along with playing Valentine party games, consider giving your friend or love a "Heart Attack." This consists of cutting out as many shapes and sizes of hearts from colored paper as my little fingers can stand. Then I get permission to sneak into their bedroom, or office or wherever they might be for most of the day, and tape all the hearts to several surfaces.
I even like hiding them in drawers and between pages of books. Another fun addition is to use heart shaped confettii that you can cut out using a heart shaped hole punch. This small hearts can be spread across a desk or bed or floor or bookshelf, etc. etc.
Valentine's Day is big business. Consumers will spend an average of $77.43 on Valentine's Day gifts this year. E-commerce retailers expect to rack up about $650 million in sales of food, candy, flowers, and other Valentine's Day gifts. Of that amount about $350 million will be for gifts and flowers and another $45 million will be spent on food (including chocolate) and wine.
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, who died in childbirth. Work on the Taj began in 1634 and continued for almost 22 years. It required the labor of 20,000 workers from all over India and Central Asia.
The heart is the most common symbol of romantic love. Ancient cultures believed the human soul lived in the heart. Others thought it to be the source of emotion and intelligence. Some believed the heart embodied a man's truth, strength and nobility. The heart may be associated with love because the ancient Greeks believed it was the target of Eros, known as Cupid to the Romans. Anyone shot in the heart by one of Cupid's arrows would fall hopelessly in love. Because the heart is so closely linked to love, its red color is thought to be the most romantic.
