Valentine's Day is a traditional day falling on February 14 on which lovers express their love for each other by sending Valentine's card, presenting flowers or offering confectionery.
It is a holiday in North America on this day to celebrate the occasion to show its significance.
Valentine's Day is named after two among the numerous Early Christian martyrs named Valentine. The day became associated with romantic love in middle ages when the tradition of courtly love flourished.
Nowadays, the practice of exchanging cards has been extended to include roses, chocolates and jewellery. But sometimes fancy may set in for merchants to come out with romantic gifts to whet the lovers' wild imagination.
In Sibu, Valentine's dinner has been a fashionable trend ever since 1993. This is the occasion when couples come hand -in-hand and dressed in the latest fashion to dine out in an ambience of romance. Practically all the eateries are doing brisk business tonight. Yes, it is pricey by local standard, but it is definitely value for money.
