Is valentine that important in Africa?
What is Valentines day? Valentine's Day, occurring on February 14th, is a time to tell of your love. Traditionally a romantic message, a declaration of love, is given to the person one desires with the request: 'Will you be my Valentine?' Answering 'yes' indicates that the love is accepted and returned. A romantic relationship is established. Today, however, the sending and receiving of Valentine messages can be an expression of affection or special friendship between the opposite sex. Many consider Valentine's Day as another way for greeting card companies, florists and chocolate makers to make a quick dollar, another excuse to get the gullible public to spend. However others see it as an excuse to be romantic.. In the rush of contemporary society romance takes a back seat and Valentine's Day is the one day of the year for the emotions of love to have free reign. Hence Valentine's Day has become a symbol of romance and as such is used to inspire romantic expression.
