Forget cupid, and start admiring Graham Bell.
Alexander Graham Bell patented the telephone on Valentine’s Day, 1876. If telephone hadn’t been there many love affairs wouldn’t have turned into successful marriages. No?
Valentine’s seems to be quite a serious culture than most of our festivals 😀
Per year approx $12.9 billion is spent on Valentine’s Day. Another mind blowing fact is that 200 million roses are produced specifically for this day in which nearly 73% are bought by men.
The Meaning of V-day is not same for all.
Valentine’s Day has many different meanings in different countries. In Finland, V-day is called as Ystavanpaiva which means friend’s day. Instead of celebrating romantic eves people there spend time in remembering friends.
