[Yakson House] Happy Valentine's Day

Valentine's Day is coming soon. 

It already February 10th and about 14 days away from today. 

Do you have any plans on Valentines day?

Maybe going out with your girlfriends and boyfriends. 

What do we exchange on valentines day?

Cards, Chocolates, Roses and etc...

Shall we find out how they originated and what kind meanings in it?

1. Chocolate.

We all know chocolate is an aphrodisiac. It contains as endorphin called 

henylethylamine, levels of which in the brain have been linked to falling in love. 

Chocolate has been used as a gift since the days of the Aztecs, who believed it to be a 

source of spiritual wisdom, energy and higher sexual prowess. It was used as a nuptial 

aid and served at wedding ceremonies, How could the Aztecs be wrong? They invented 

the stuff, after all, along with popcorn and universal education. 

2. Roses

February 14 is like black Friday for florists, accounting for 32 percent of annual sales. 

But why are flowers associated with love? Apparently, in the early 1700s, Charles II of 

Sweden brought the Persian poetical art known as the "language of flowers" to Europe. 

Throughout the 18th century, ladies loved their floral dictinaries, which listed the 

symbolic meanings of different flowers. The red rose was belived to be the favored

flower of Venus, the Roman Goddess of Love, and has come to represent romantic 

love. And so, giving red roses on Valentine's Day became the thing to do. 

Happy Valentines' day Everyone!

Show your love to your lovers, and favorite people.
