Feb. 6, 2010 - PRLog -- TICK TOCK…TICK TOCK…you realize the weeks are flying by, the days are spilling into the next faster than you can keep up, and before you know it you have less than 72 hours to plan…SOMETHING! Then, suddenly it’s here!  That special day each year that was created just for the expressions of love and romance – Valentine’s Day! So before we get into the “sweet confections,” or the “naughty connections,” let’s first take a quick look at how “Valentine’s Day” came about.

CUPID – “The Little Bastard”
There are varying accounts of Saints and mythology regarding and associated with this day of enthusiastic affection. Clearly, we’re all aware of the petite little angel with the bow and quiver of arrows associated with Valentine’s Day – Cupid (aka, Amor).

He was the son of Venus (Aphrodite), who was the Goddess of love.   She bestowed upon Cupid the duty of piercing the hearts of would-be lovers with gold tipped arrows, causing them to fall in love with the first person they saw. Legend has it that he would fly around, arbitrarily shooting his “weapon of love” at whomever caught his eye – this is where we get the expression, “Love at first sight!”  Okay, okay… maybe it’s not, but it sounds good, right?

At any rate, what you may not know is that this picture-perfect, petite-winged cherub had a rather mischievous side to him as well; shooting leaden tipped arrows into the would-be lover’s mate of choice, causing the quintessential polarity of LOVE – the little bastard (no, really, he was because who his father was remains in question to this day…eh-hem, but that’s a whole other story, LOL!).

Cupid, accidentally scratched himself with his own golden arrow and fell madly in love with a beautiful mortal woman named Psyche (meaning, SOUL).  This, of course, was after Venus’ orders to shoot Psyche with his golden arrow to make her fall in love with a monster (due to the fact that Venus was jealous of Psyche’s beauty and was no longer receiving all the attention).  This just goes to show that we should never mess around with love – it can totally backfire!
