Do we actually need a day to express our love? Why only 14th Feb ??

Emotion is the essential part of human life. If we forget it that, we can't find human being well off. Hence I have no hesitation to acknowledge that, it is  necessary to have a day to express our feelings. In this way  there a natural question that is our emotion or feeling is expressible only the day of VD or  feeling expression is continuous process? Of course it can't be expressed on a fixed day but It should be a special day when we may celebrate it as the whole year. We have so many examples- Dashahara, Dipavalee etc. We do the worthy works in the whole the year but celebrate on the day of a historical day which is concerned that one.

Every year in the Feb, almost across the country, flowers and other gifts are exchanged among loved ones, these are all in the name of great  St. Valentine. Never the less who is this mysterious saint and why do we celebrate this day is questionable. The history of  VD(?) and its proprietor saint (?) is shrouded in mystery. But we do know that February has long been a month of romance. St. Valentine's Day, as we know it today, contains vestiges of both Christian and ancient Roman tradition.Indeed in Indian tradition  it has also taken place. We use to celebrate 'Vasant parv'  which is also  related with Romance. It also comes almost in the  period.
