  • What Do People Do In Australia On Valentines Day February 14th 2013

    Many people in countries such as Australia celebrate Valentine’s Day by giving flowers, chocolates, jewelry or other presents of all shapes and sizes to their loved ones or those they admire. This event falls on February 14 each year.

    What do people do?

    Valentine’s Day is an event that is marked by many Australians in their calendars. For many, it is a time in which they share a special moment with their loved ones. Activities that people do to show their love and appreciation for each other on Valentine’s Day include:

    • Picnics in the park.
    • Buying gifts of chocolates, flowers, jewelry, or other items for their loved ones.
    • A romantic meal at a restaurant.
    • A boat cruise with a special meal.
    • Placing a notice in the local newspaper or a message through a local radio announcement dedicated to Valentine’s Day.

    Some people choose Valentine’s Day as the day to propose to their partners, while others set February 14 as their wedding day. Some charities, non-government organizations, or community organizations hold special events, such as a Valentine’s Day ball, to raise funds for various causes that help others in need.

    Public life

    Valentine’s Day is an observance but it is not a designated nationwide public holiday in Australia. Restaurants, theatres, coffee shops, and shops selling Valentine’s Day related products may be particularly busy on this day. Those wishing to eat out on Valentine’s Day may need to book with their restaurant of choice in advance.

    Background

    Valentine’s Day is celebrated in many countries worldwide. The origins of Valentine's Day are not clear but many sources believe that it stems from the story of St Valentine, a Roman priest who was martyred on or around February 14 in the year 270 CE. Valentine’s Day has become increasingly popular in Australia over the years, particularly during the late 20th century, and it continues to be observed among many Australians today.

  • How To Care For Your Roses this Valentines Day

    What to Look for:

    • Flowers with strong stems to support blooms
    • Slightly open buds, this will vary between varieties but in general if given the correct care then the vase life will be better for those slightly open rather than a tight bud.

    What to Do:

    • The vase life of the rose is highly dependant on the rose being kept well hydrated at all times.
    • Re cut the stems underwater on an angle with a sharp knife or secateurs.
    • Use commercial preservative in the water.
    • Remove all leaves that will go below the water line.

    What to Avoid:

    • Do not place in sun or draught
    • Do not place on top of television
