Valentine's Day honours the love and adoration shared by close friends and partners. Valentine's Day is a special occasion observed by couples going out on dates, giving gifts, and engaging in romantic activities. The week preceding Valentine's Day is referred to as Valentine's Week, so the celebration of love is not restricted to that single day.

As part of Valentine's Week, Propose Day is observed. This is the day, if someone has been waiting to "pop the question" to their special someone. It is the day when couples publicly declare their undying love and devotion to one another.

The couple treasures the proposal as a significant turning point in their relationship. In India, this day is widely observed, and depending on their marital status, people either use the occasion to pop the question or make new vows. A couple's promise and devotion to one another are symbolised by the celebration of Propose Day.

Chocolate Day 2023

According to popular belief, the day is observed to honour the decadent taste of chocolate and to honour the sweetness it offers to our lives. The date of February 9 was chosen to mark Chocolate Day because it falls in the middle of the month of love, which makes it the ideal time to give chocolate as a token of affection. The holiday gives chocolate enthusiasts a chance to indulge in their favourite treats, trade gifts, and enjoy the sweet flavour of this widely consumed delicacy.

People celebrate Chocolate Day during Valentine's Week because chocolate is a symbol of love and dedication to one another. People started giving each other chocolates on this day all around the world as time went on.

Teddy Day 2023

Teddy Day is a celebration that is observed as part of Valentine's Week, a seven-day celebration that describes Valentine's Day. Teddy bears are used to communicate love and affection on February 10th, which is known as Teddy Day. Teddy bears are given to loved ones as a token of love and affection on this day.

Teddy bears have been a well-liked gift for many years and they still are. Teddy bears' appeal stems from the fact that they are adorable, cuddly, and reassuring. They perfectly capture the affection and concern that one person has for another. Teddy bears offer warmth and stability, and by giving one as a present, one can show a loved one that they care about them and want to be there for them always.

The concept of Teddy Day was made popular in the West, but it has now spread to other parts of the world, including India. On this day, lovers show their affection for one another by giving teddy bears, sending romantic letters, or exchanging sweet remarks. In order to honour their love and affection, some couples may organise special date nights or spend time together.

Promise Day 2023

Promise Day is meant to provide couples a chance to show how committed and devoted they are to one another, to make promises they intend to follow, and to reassure one another of their love and support.

On Promise Day, people get the chance to think back on their prior promises and make fresh ones to the people they care about. This day serves as a reminder for people to honour their commitments to their loved ones by keeping their word and keeping their promises. It serves as a reminder that love is more than simply words and showy deeds; it also involves keeping one's word and supporting the other through good and terrible times.

Hug Day 2023

Hug Day, which falls on the sixth day of Valentine's Week, is a day enjoyed by lovers around. People offer their spouses a firm hug on this day to show them how much they care. A hug is a symbol of accepting your spouse as they are, with all their weaknesses and flaws. The day occurs on February 11, which is two days before Valentine's Day. All couples hug one other occasionally, but young couples have a special place in their hearts for this day. In addition to being a sign of affection, giving someone a hug can also help them feel safe and at ease.

Hugs convey support, comfort, affection, companionship, and solace to our loved ones and are a sign of endearment. A hug is used to convey warmth and care when words alone fall short. Give your partner a bear hug on this day to show them how much you value them.

 Kiss Day 2023

As lovers kiss one another to show their affection for one another, Kiss Day is observed. This Valentine's Week, a simple kiss can brighten your partner's day. Kissing allegedly causes the production of the "happy chemicals" oxytocin, dopamine, and serotonin. These hormones are released in response to pleasure, which lowers the body's levels of Cortisol, a stress hormone.

Valentine's Day 2023

Every year on February 14, Valentine's Day, also known as Saint Valentine's Day or the Feast of Saint Valentine, is observed.  It began as a Christian feast day dedicated to one or more martyred early Christians by the name of Saint Valentine. It has developed into a huge cultural, religious, and economic celebration of romance and love in many parts of the world through later folk customs.
