Valentine’s Week 2024 Dates and Significance:
February 7: Rose Day
Rose Day falls on February 7 annually. It is the first day of Valentine’s Week. On this day, couples exchange roses or send a bouquet to their loved ones. People also gift someone they like or adore with flowers to mark this occasion. While people generally gift their partners roses on this day, it shouldn’t stop you from surprising your love with a bouquet of their favourite flowers. Different colours of roses hold a special meaning on this day. For instance, red signifies love, yellow stands for friendship, and pink signifies appreciation and admiration.
February 8: Propose Day
Proposal Day is the second day of the week. It falls on February 8. As the name suggests, it is the day for people to confess their feelings or pop the big question to their love interest—you can ask a potential partner to be your partner or to marry you. However, you should confirm that your partner wants you to ask this question before jumping the gun and putting them in an awkward position.
February 9: Chocolate Day
Chocolate Day is the third day and falls after Proposal Day on February 9. On this day, people gift chocolates to their partner, crush, or love interest. Some also prepare handmade chocolates or make an assortment of their partner’s favourite candies as a gift. In case your loved one doesn’t like sweets, you can give them their favourite snack as a present.
February 10: Teddy Day
Teddy falls on February 10. It is the fourth day of Valentine’s Week. People in love surprise their partners on this day by gifting them with adorable plushies or teddy bears. It is believed that a cuddly toy would help your partner destress or forget their worries, as the present would remind them of your love.
February 11: Promise Day
Promise Day falls on February 11. It is the fifth day of Valentine’s Week. On Promise Day, people make promises to love and cherish each other through thick and thin, strengthen their bond, be a cheerleader, and give support in difficult situations. This promise, or commitment, helps them show their partner the intensity of their love for them.
February 12: Hug Day
Hug Day is the sixth day of Valentine’s Week and falls on February 12. A hug is a comforting gesture, and when one receives it from their loved ones, it helps remove all worries from their mind. After all, physical affection works wonders when language fails to express our true feelings. Therefore, on Hug Day, partners hug each other to comfort each other and promise to be the light in each other’s darkest days.
