Every February there is a mad rush to buy flowers or chocolates for our loved ones on Valentine’s Day. How much do we really know about this Hallmark Holiday? Here are a few interesting facts and tidbits to keep in mind this year:

  • In Victorian England it was considered bad luck to sign a V-Day card
  • Feb 14 is also Singles Awareness Day
  • Valentine’s Day started with the execution of Bishop Valentine in the 3rd century
  • Most cards and gifts are bought within three days of the 14th making it the ultimate procrastinator’s holiday

Why is any of this important and how does it relate to real estate? Well, truth be told, it isn’t and it doesn’t….don’t we all need a little nonsense in our life though? Do we really need a random day in February to tell our loved ones that we love them? Anyway, I hope you have a lovely Valentine’s Day with your friends and family, it’s always nice to tell the people around you how much you appreciate them.
