Valentine’s Day

Gotta love wikipedia

Saint Valentine’s Day or Valentine’s Day is on February 14. It is the traditional day on which lovers express their love for each other; sending Valentine’s cards, candy, or donations to charities, often anonymously. It is very common to present flowers on Valentine’s Day. The holiday is named after two men, both Christian martyrs named Valentine. The day became associated with romantic love in the High Middle Ages, when the tradition of courtly love flourished.

Merayakan kasih sayang ya? Apapun, semoga bukan hari ini saja.
Kelihatannya Valentine lebih meriah bagi industri kartu, coklat, bunga dan permen daripada yang merayakan kasih sayang. Semoga Anda juga tidak terjebak, siapa yang butuh kartu dengan teks pesan yang sama dengan jutaan lainnya atau coklat jika kamu bisa memberikan pelukan hangat. yay …

V for Vendetta, not Valentine :p

PS: Anda tahu kenapa simbol hati tidak mirip dengan organ hati yang sebenarnya (καρδιά, kardia)? Menurut zoologist Desmond Morris, dalam Bodywatching (1985):

“The traditional heart symbol, with its deep cleft, looks very little like a real heart. Unconsciously, it seems to have been based more on the shape of the naked female buttocks, as seen by an amorous male approaching from behind. As a symbol of love, this makes much more sense for the human species, bearing in mind the unique and highly
characteristic shape of this part of the anatomy, so much the focus of male sexual attention.”

Bokong perempuan? Jadi simbol cinta itu dari perspektif pria?
