The very first Valentine’s Day began in the year 496. It’s an old tradition believed to have its origins from a Roman festival. Romans had a festival called Lupercalia in the middle of February, official start of their springtime.
Valentine’s got its name from a famous saint, but there are many other stories of who he really was. The most believed is that St Valentine was a priest from Rome in third century AD. There are many different kinds of love and different ways to celebrate valentines. As a child my mom would always give my sister and I chocolates for Valentine’s Day. In return my sister and I would make our mom a handmade card. I always looked forward to Valentine’s Day every year.
Gifting that special someone on Valentine’s Day can be difficult, with so many choices. Like my mom would do for my sister and I every year, I have an idea that would make a great gift if you have a daughter. You could get mommy and me matching leggings. Leggings are popular with all ages for their comfort and style. Having a matching pair of leggings is sure to put a smile on your daughters face. A great place to find leggings are at nimbustights.com. You can also find great leggings at most retail stores.
