Cupid is the god of desire, erotic love, attraction and affection, often portrayed as the son of the love goddess Venus and the war god Mars. Valentine’s Day originated as a celebration to honour the Christian Saint Valentinus. We have been celebrating Valentine’s Day since the 18th century, a day associated with lovers.
Valentine’s Day is fast approaching. Shops across the country are suddenly stacked high with heart-adorned cards and boxes of chocolates, bouquets of flowers and teddy bears with cutsy messages. There are great gifts and good enough gifts. And the difference is that with a great gift you show how much you know and appreciate your partner, and with the good enough gift you still show your love and attention
- it is more than acceptable to buy less expensive gifts
- or none at all
- or to buy a gift of mutual interest.
Don’t give money, chocolates, or lingerie… give attention, devotion and love, or this 2 book set, which could be considered a coffee table book; there for a casual peek, not intense reading. The chapters are carefully marked for your reading pleasure and easy reference.
