Valentine’s Day is fast approaching and we want to share with you some gifts for golf lovers.
But, before we go into those, I thought it might be fun to talk about the origins of Valentine’s Day?
Of course, you probably know that it was originally Saint Valentine’s Day.
Not surprisingly, there are several explanations of its origins and some say it dates back to the 5th Century and the Roman Spring Festival of Lupercalia.
Lupercalia was a pagan festival that included fertility rites and the pairing of young men and women through some sort of lottery.
Hence, its romantic connection.
Although there are a number of hazy versions of how it began, no-one really knows!
Who Was Saint Valentine?
Actually, there were several Christian martyrs who were named Valentine.
One was supposed to have healed the blindness of his jailer’s daughter.
At that time the Roman Emperor enlisted only single men as soldiers because he considered them to be better when single.
He banned marriage for soldiers.
It is said that St Valentine of Terni may be the true St Valentine.
The story goes that he conducted secret wedding ceremonies for single guys to help them stay out of the Army.
Thus, the day became synonymous with love.
We may never know the true beginnings of St Valentine’s Day.
Nevertheless, we celebrate our love on that day – 14th February – each year.
It Doesn’t Have To Be Roses Only!
When thinking about Valentine’s Day gifts for your golfing wife or girlfriend, think about this. While roses may express your love for her, she’ll know you really love her if you give her an addition to her golf bag.
So, one of the best gifts for golf lovers might be something that she doesn’t need, but she might just like to have.
Therefore, here are a few suggestions.
