So, go volunteer at your local animal shelter or soup kitchen and spread the love, because what you give is what you get.
Because Valentine's Day is a very special day for lovers, whether they are married, engaged or in love, single people in Egypt are celebrating the day as well, but in different ways. While nobody can be sure, many people believe Valentine's Day originated in Ancient Rome as the successor of Lupercalia, a festival that celebrated springtime and fertility. Claudius was no friend of Christians and persecuted them quite frequently. Emperor Claudius II chose to ban marriage because he believed soldiers performed better when they didn't have a wife or families at home. Others say the sentence came because he was caught secretly performing weddings, defying a ban on marriage that had been imposed by the Emperor as a solution to a military recruitment crunch. If you don't see your parents every day, stop by their home and give them a hug.
Some legends say Valentine was a bishop in Terni, Italy, who healed the sick, including the blind daughter of a prison guard whom he met while in jail for practicing Christianity in a pagan world.

Tons of people and animals would love a little more love and affection and what better way to express it. I know I have. There's also career fulfilment, platonic love, family ties, financial security, and a whole host of things that can go into filling a life. Here's everything you need to know about how the day started, how it's celebrated around the world and more! We say we "love" so many material things like our auto, our home, clothes. And, fortunately, we don't have to. I don't think so that in our busy schedules we get such special time. What it is really all about is a deep spirit of caring for another person. It is one of the greatest attributes that we as humans have. God made us, the Bible says, "in His image" and "after His likeness". "Mother" love is like God's love. If given a chance I would love to take Sridevi out for a dinner date along with my wife because we both are fans of her and admire her for all that she has done.
