The month of February is always seen and being described as the month of LOVE. This love is being expressed by friends and loved ones across the whole world.

One of such Lovi Dovi moment is the " Valentine Day " which occurs on February 14, of every year. Valentine celebrations came about a result of the love St. Valentine showed on February 14 around the year 270 AD.

Around the 16th century, a story goes that a very bored French Queen decided to create a game in order to entertain herself. She gathered all men and women in her court and gave them task to carry out. Men were asked to write Poetry and Songs and bring Chocolates and Red Roses to women.

On the other hand, women would dress in their finest clothes and stain their Lips and Cheeks a shade of red and sing complimentary words to their men .The Queen called this game Love. Eventually, these little practices of chivalry in love are what we called modern day Romance.

From the game played by the French Queen, the colour red seems to be recurring detail to represent the blood red of the beating heart and that heart was the ultimate symbol of Love , red roses and red lips.

Moreover, red is the colour of sexuality and can stimulate deeper passions in humans , so it is used to describe Erotic sceneries in painting and writing various love poets .

In China, Red is a colour of prosperity and happiness and since Red is the colour of the beating heart, ignition of sexual desires and ultimate sacrifice for love , it makes it the best option for Valentine's Day .
