Whilst the true origins of Valentine’s Day are widely thought as contentious, the recognised story of a sadly martyred roman priest – Saint Valentine – is notably understood as the inspiration behind what is meant to be the most romantic day of the year.
Valentine’s Day, now something of a commercial circus, is the day when loved ones are required to celebrate their devotion to one another with lavish gestures and expensive gifts; and singles are expected to reveal themselves as somebody’s admirer – which would ideally be received with the same enthusiasm and returned affection.
Naturally however, with such great expectations comes disappointment and heartache – or most unfortunately revulsion! Like us, perhaps you have experienced a similarly awkward, hilarious or simply tragic Valentine’s Day, whatever your experience we would love to hear from you.
