વેલેન્ટાઈન ડે…Valentine Day

 
આજે, શનિવાર, ફેબ્રુઆરી, ૧૪નો દિવસ,,,એટલે વેલેન્ટાઈન ડે કહેવાય….આજે “પ્રેમી-પ્રેમીકાઓ ” એક બીજાને પ્રેમ્-પ્રEmperorતિકરૂપે કાર્ડ/ફુલો કે કંઈક “પ્રેઝન્ટ ” મોકલે/આપે. આથી, આજે સૌ માટે આ ખુશીનો દિવસ. આ ચાલતી એક પ્રથા છે, પણ આ બારેનો ઈતિહાસ ઘણાને ખબર ના હશે. મને પણ પુરી માહિતીની જાણ ના હતી તો મેં ઈન્ટરનેટ પર જઈ જે જાણ્યું તે જ લખ્યું છે………….વાંચતા જાણ્યું કે જ્યારે “રોમન રાજ્ય સત્તા ” હતી ત્યારે એક માનવી સેઈન્ટ વેલેન્ટાઈન ખ્રિસ્તી ધર્મ માટે પોતાની જાન બલીદાન ફેબ્રુઆરી, ૧૪ના દિવસે કરી હતી અને કહેવાય છે કે એણે જેઈલરની દિકરીને એક ચિઠ્ઠી લખી હતી તેમાં સહી કરી હતી “યોર વેલેન્ટાઈન ” એથી  આ દિવસ ઉજવાય છે……તો ક્યાંક એવો પણ ઉલ્લેખ છે કે ત્યારના રોમન રાજા ક્લોડીઅસ (Emperor Claudius ) એ વેલેન્ટાઈનને માર્યા બાદ “પોપે ” ફેબ્રુઆરી, ૧૪ નો દિવસ એની યાદમાં ઉજવવાનો આદેશ આપ્યો એથી આ ઉત્સવ…….. તો, એક જગ્યાએ એવું વાચ્યું કે રોમન સત્તા સમયે ફેબ્રુઆરી ૧૪નો દિવસ રોમન દેવો-દેવીઓની રાણી જુનો (JUNO )ની યાદમાં એક રજાનો દિવસ હતો અને જ્યારે સેઈન્ટ વેલેન્ટાઈનનું મરણ થયું ત્યારબાદ ધીરે ધીરે આ દિવસને “પ્રેમીકાના દિવસ ” યાને LOVERS’ Day or VALENTINE DAY તરીકે ઉજવવાની પ્રથા શરૂ થઈ……… આ દિવસે, પ્રેમીઓ એકબીજાને પત્રો લખે કે કંઈક પ્રેઝેન્ટો મોકલે (ફુલો…લાલ ગુલાબ ના ફુલો, ટેડીબેર વિગેરે ) અમેરીકામાં આ દિવસ માટે કાર્ડ પણ શરૂ થયા.
આજે સૌને “હેપ્પી વેલેન્ટઈન ડે ” ( HAPPY VALENTINE DAY to ALL ) ………ચંદ્રવદન.
FEW WORDS
This post is to wish HAPPY VALENTINE DAY to ALL who celebrate the Day…. In the post, I had told the history how this Celebration was started.. It appears that it was started during the Roman Empire period & a person by the name of St. Valentine seems to be the inspiration for it…but over the times, the 14th February cam to be known as the VALENTINE DAY, a day of expressing LOVE to eachother as we celebrate it nowadays with the exchange of Cards, Flowers & Gifts…..May you All have a wonderful day>>>>>CHANDRAVADAN.

    હેપ્પી વેલેન્ટઈન ડેFacts Figures About Valentine’s Day
    Did you know that, according to legend, Valentine’s Day was started to Saint Valentine, a Roman saint who was executed on February 14th, 270 A.D.? St. Valentine was killed for secretly marrying couples in defiance of an order of the Roman emperor. The emperor had forbidden marriage after Roman men began refusing conscription in order to stay home with their wives.
    Did you know that Cupid was the son of Venus, the Roman god of love? Cupid is a mainstay of Valentine’s Day marketing campaigns, featured prominently on greeting cards and boxes of chocolates.
    Did you know that 65 percent of American households send or exchange greeting cards? More than 180 million Valentine’s cards are sent by mail, with another 700 million homemade and store-bought Valentine’s exchanged at school and work.
    Did you know that Hallmark sells over 1,300 different styles of Valentine’s Day cards? February 14th is the second most popular card-giving holiday. Christmas is the first most popular.
    Did you know that exchanging Valentine’s cards likely began in America as early as the 1700s?
    The first mass-produced Valentine’s Day card was sold in the 1840s by Esther Howland, a Massachusetts native. She originally sold hand-made, lace cards for as much as $35 per card.
    Did you know that the oldest known Valentine’s Day card is on display at a London museum? The card was sent in 1415 by the Duke of Orleans to his wife in France. The Duke was imprisoned at the time in the Tower of London.
    Did you know that 38 percent of Americans buy candy for their loved ones on Valentines Day? The first heart-shaped box of candy was sold in 1868 by Richard Cadbury.
    Did you know that chocolate has long been considered an aphrodisiac? The Aztec emperor Montezuma drank ground cocoa beans to increase his sexual prowess. In Mesoamerican marriage ceremonies, the couple shared a ritual cup of cocoa, which was believed to increase their luck in love.
    Did you know that 32 percent of Americans purchase flowers on Valentine’s Day? Three-quarters of those who buy the flowers are men.
    Did you know that the red rose was believed to be the favorite flower of Venus, the Roman god of love and the father of Cupid?
    Did you know that Americans buy and send more than 110 million roses for Valentine’s Day? California is the leading domestic producer of roses, although the majority of the ones sold on Valentine’s Day are imported from South America.
    Did you know that one in 10 Americans buy jewelry as a Valentine’s Day gift? In 2005, February jewelry sales topped $2.4 billion.
    Did you know that on Valentine’s Day, 1876, Alexander Graham Bell applied for a patent on his invention, the telephone, which he called “an improvement in telegraphy”? If you can’t be with your loved one on Valentine’s Day, you can “reach out and touch someone” — thanks to Mr. Bell.
    Did you know that the expression “wear your heart on your sleeve” comes from a Middle Ages Valentine’s Day tradition? Young men and women would draw the name of their Valentine from a bowl. They would wear their selected name on their sleeves for one week.
    Did you know that Valentine’s Day was first declared an official holiday by King Henry VIII of England in 1537? Today Valentine’s Day is celebrated on February 14th in the United Kingdom, the United States, Canada, Mexico, France and Australia.
    Did you know that in Colombia, Valentines Day is celebrated in September? And Brazil, Valentine’s Day, otherwise known as the Day of the Enamored, is on June 12. In Israel, Tu B’Av is the holiday of love, celebrated in late summer.

    જય શ્રીકૃષ્ણ કાકા,
    આજે મનના વિશ્વાસને એક વર્ષ પૂર્ણ થયેલ હોવાથી તેની પોસ્ટમાં વ્યસ્ત હતો.
    તેથી આજે બહુ સમય ન હોવા છતા આપની રચના વાંચી લીધી છે.
    HAPPY VALENTINE DAY …
    with regards
    Dr.Hitesh ChaUHAN

    Happy Ventine day Kamuben.
    Recently I received an E mail saying that the origin of the “Valan Time day” was in Gujarat. Ladies of Gujrat particularly from Surat one day revolted against their Husbands for ill treating them and took VALANS and threatened their husbands that they will get a Spanking if they did not stop ill treating them.
    The Husbands got to-gether and to calm down their wives ,brought flowers and candies to their wives. That day happened to be February 14th.
    This is the way the ” VALAN TIME ” day was originated.

    I also wish u a happy day but for all the days in yr life. As Jay vasavada comments for this day on face book. that i woul like to share with u as below:
    Jay Vasavada
    પ્રેમ કરવાનો એક દિવસ ન હોવો જોઈએ. તો ભક્તિનો ચોક્કસ દિવસ હોય? તો પછી રામનવમી,જન્માષ્ટમી,શિવરાત્રી સુધીના અઢળક તહેવારો પણ શા માટે? ભાઈ-બહેન શું એક જ દિવસ પુરતો એકબીજાને સ્નેહ કરે છે? તો રક્ષાબંધન કેમ એક જ દિવસ ઉજવાય છે? ગુરૂપૂર્ણિમા પણ શા માટે? દેશને બધા રોજ ચાહે છે, તો એક સ્વાતન્ત્ર્યદિન જ કેમ ઉજવવો? લાગણીઓ સનાતન છે, પણ એને વ્યક્ત કરવા સમાજને કોઈ દિવસ નક્કી કરવો અનુકુળ રહે છે. પ્રત્યેક પર્વ એવી રીતે જન્મે છે!

    આ ઉપરાંત આજનો દિવસ બીજી રીતે પણ યાદગાર છે કે આપણા દેશ્ના વીર સપૂતો ભગતસિંગ, સુખ્દેવ અને રાજ ગુરુ એ દેશ્ને ખાતર શહીદી વ્હોરી હતી. આવો એમને પણ શ્રદ્ધાના સુમન અર્પીત કરીએ…

  • HAPPY VALENTINE DAY ણી માહિતી જાણવા મળી તે બદલ આભાર ! આપણા વીર સપૂતોને પણ આજે યાદ કરવાનો ડીસ છે, જે કદાચ પશ્ચિમી સંસ્કૃતિના પ્રવાહમાં ભૂલાઈ ના જાય !
    હ, એ ત્રણ મસ્તોણે યાદ કરવા જરોર્રી છે, ભગતસિંહ, સુખદેવ, અને રાજગુરુ કે જેણે આજના દિવસે શહીદી દેશ માટે વહોરી હતી.
