Valentines Is Just Around The Corner…
Valentines Day, a girl’s favorite holiday in a year! The day to celebrate two peoples love and affection for one another.
Experts are not 100% positive where the origins of Valentines Day came, however they do have an idea. A Roman, Saint Valentine was martyred for refusing to give up Christianity. He died on February 14, 269 AD the same day which had been devoted to love lotteries. Love lotteries were when boys drew names of girls who they were to be coupled with for the year, in honor of Juno.
In modern times, we exchange gifts, cards and acts of love to symbolize the degree of our love for our significant other. However, with 52% of the population single, this holiday is definitely not celebrated by all. The most surprising figure, is the $2.8 billion in jewelry and watch sales that occurred in the year 2009 for Valentines Day gifts.
But more down our alley, in 2007 radio personality, Howard Stern got his girlfriend a $250,000 engagement ring on Valentines Day. Beth Ostrosky received a 5.2 emerald cut engagement ring, which crackled and popped sparkle on her finger!
Music executive, Jordan Bratman, proposed to artist Christina Aguilera in 2002. He surprised her with a 5 carat diamond and platinum ring on Valentines Day, which she clearly couldn’t turn down.
