It’s the month of Februray once again! This month isn’t just a special month for us here at Naldz but for sure, this too is something special to all of you guys out there. There are just four (4) seasons in a year but the Season of Love is added to make it five (5) as dreamily believed by some. February is said to be the season for it. The month of love as others regard it. Valentinus is the Latin name of St. Valentine,a Roman priest and martyred saint. His feast day is on the 14th of February. He was marrying Christian couples which Claudius Gothicus, then ruler of Rome caught him. It was a crime to help Christians and it lead to the death of Valentine. He was given special commemoration that even the whole month of February becomes the celebration of love since he died of the love for Christian couples.
One of the many ways to express love is through creativity in cards. There may be e-cards all around the web already but the effort of creating one is still worth it. Love shows effort despite the busy schedules and all that… In one of today’s post, we share with you a Sweet Collection of Valentine’s Day Card Inspirations to simply give you ideas as to what designs will cards have on this special day.
