Welcome to Awakenings

Life IS history in the making. Every word we say, everything we do becomes history the moment it is said or done. Life void of memories leaves nothing but emptiness. For those who might consider history boring, think again: It is who we are, what we do and why we are here. We are certainly individuals in our thoughts and deeds but we all germinated from seeds planted long, long ago.

The Establishment of Valentine’s Day




We will soon awaken to the biggest romance day of the year: A day when spirits are lifted in both usual and unusual ways. Some stroke the heartstrings so tenderly tears are gently brushed away with a kiss; others are totally mesmerizing striking deep down into the soul. Then, of course, there are those that are totally unexpected that bring about smiles and laughter along with the tears.

So, what plans do you have for that special someone on Valentine’s Day? Chocolates, roses, jewelry, gift basket, stuffed animal?  Perhaps a surprise getaway, breakfast in bed, champagne brunch?
It is not surprising that there are limitless possibilities, especially with the ability to traverse cyberspace over the World Wide Web. Our fingers negotiate the keyboard like the hairy legs of the spider spinning its web. Having to venture out to find that one gift which says it so perfectly is no longer the only option.

Of course, like all things there is history behind this day filled with everlasting expressions of love. Its roots date back to ancient times. Do you know why we celebrate Valentine's Day on February 14th and where the holiday customs come from? Find out in 3 minutes 49 seconds by clicking this video link: History of Valentine's Day.
