Each year on February 14th, many people exchange cards, candy, gifts, flowers or ... diamonds with their special Valentine
Being my Valentine means that you're that special and the only person I will be spoiling the day of. It doesn't mean we are in a relationship. It just means for that day, I express to you in words, gifts and actions what you or your friendship means to me in a more intimate manner.
A pagan fertility ritual was held in February each year and the Pope abolished this festival and proclaimed 14 February Saint Valentine's Day, thus establishing this feast day on the Catholic Calendar of Saints. The poet Chaucer in the Middle Ages was the first to link St Valentine with romantic love.
Having a particular Valentine's Day is a very old tradition, thought to have originated from a Roman festival. The Romans had a festival called Lupercalia in the middle of February - officially the start of their springtime.
Valentine's day is the perfect time to offer this exclusive badge to someone so she/he can display it on her/his board.
The challenge is not about earning the badge for yourself but giving it to the one(s) you love.
For this to happen, you simply have to write a comment like the following one on this post :
@username I love you! Happy Valentine's day!
Some tips for a successful Valentine's day challenge: - Be careful not to send your wishes to someone who has already been mentioned in a previous comment. - Do not forget to replace @username with the name of the person to whom you wish to offer this badge. - The lines below can contain anything you want to say to your Valentine. Feel free to be a bit more prolific or talkative with your love message. - Write several comments if you want to offer the badge to several people but to avoid spam and abuse, each participant is limited to 10 gifts
Your Valentine will be personally informed of your gift by @hivebuzz on their last message, if any, or as a reply to your comment.
This challenge will run till February 15th, 23:59 UTC time! Don’t miss it.
We take this opportunity to spread more love and announce that @traciyork has joined the HiveBuzz team with all her passion for Hive (should say all her love), her boundless energy and of course her famous .gif that she unleashes faster than lightning.
We have already worked a lot together in the past, especially for the Hive PUD challenges. It is therefore the natural consequence of a fruitful collaboration.
