It’s the season of hearts, I've already given you some ideas to give to your loved ones, now let’s have some sweet and funny facts about the season of hearts.
April birthstone jewelry
Did you know that almost all jewelry boutiques are dropping their items up to 50%? Yes, every girl’s favorite diamonds, April’s birthstone jewelry is on sale and up for grabs. The funny thing is, a very few percentage was being purchased by the guy’s. Most items are bought by girls as a present for themselves.
heart on your sleeve
The expression "wearing your heart on your sleeve" materialized from a party tradition during the season of hearts. Young women are asked to write their names on scented slips of paper (actually it’s the women who sprayed their perfume on the paper before writing their names) to be drawn by young men. A man would then wear a woman's name on his sleeve to claim her as his valentine. What’s funny is that the guy’s will only see the face of the girl after he had put the paper on his sleeve.

According to a survey made a few years ago, almost 75 percent of couple’s breaks up a few weeks before the season of hearts arrive for such petty reasons, for example “he wouldn't quit making rude comments about my hair. If he didn't like my hair he should not have asked me out in the first place. ”. And there is also 50% o couples breaking up during the day of the valentine.
red roses and bears
A statistics shows that there is approximately 110 million roses, the majority red, are sold and delivered within a three-day time period during the Valentine season. About 73% of those 110 million roses are bought by men, 15% are purchased by women to send themselves during the season and the remaining 10% are purchased by kids of both gender for their teachers, parents etc.

During the middle ages, there is a belief that the first man a girl sees on the day Valentine is celebrated would be their future spouse (of course relatives and family members are exempted). Consequently to this, the first guy's name you read in the paper or hear on the TV or radio will be the name of the man you will marry.
love birds

There is also a belief that the kind of bird a girl watches or draw near her predicts what her would-be-husbands status in the society. If it’s a sparrow you’ll marry a poor man, bluebird tells you his going to be a jolly person, and a cross bill represents someone argumentative while an owl embodies being an old maid/spinster.

Imagine if you are too engross with your surrounding and didn't notice an owl is already in front of you, and when you regained your senses, people are already giving you that puppy look. :)
