Happy Valentines Day. By the way, I don’t know if you knew that behind the story of the most romantic day there is a decapitation and body parts scattered throughout Europe. Saint Valentine in the 2nd century allegedly broke a Roman ban on marrying and so he suffered a horrible death and subsequent desecration of his corpse. Since then, the way we have to honor him and show how brave he was with his actions every February 14 is to show our love for that special person with gifts. But not only chocolates, flowers or romantic dinners, we can also give applications for Mac and why not take advantage and make ourselves a gift. Because I am going to tell you one thing, they may love us but the first thing you must love is yourself.
Just a bit of Valentine’s history.
The Catholic martyr Saint Valentine was beheaded on February 14, 3rd century. Apparently he didn’t like the Roman norm that It was forbidden to celebrate marriages. After his death, it is stated that his heart is in a church in Dublin. His alleged skull is on display in a basilica in Rome. His skeleton would be in Glasgow, inside a gold box. But not complete because it is said that a bone from his shoulder would be in Prague. It clashes a bit with what they say from Spain, which states that the remains of the Saint are found in the church of San Antón in Madrid.
Be that as it may, the tradition of giving each other something on that day prevails since those dates. It is known that in times of the ancient Roman Empire the festival of the Lupercales was celebrated. When lovers welcome spring. Single women and men wrote their names on ballots. They were distributed randomly and the paired began a courtship that could end in marriage.
Something similar has come down to our days. What we do now is give that person we love a detail to indicate what we feel. It is not usually thought of giving away more than flowers, chocolates, dinners or romantic getaways. However, we tell you that it is also a nice detail give away applications for Mac, especially if the recipient of the gift is very technological. We are going to see some that are sure to be to your liking.
