Saint Valentine’s Day or Valentine’s Day is the official day to celebrate love! This celebration is typically from Anglo-Saxon countries and extended to other countries in the 20th century. Most of the countries celebrate this day at February 14th. In this day, couples usually spent the day or part of the day together and exchange presents like the traditional greeting cards (“Valentines”), the chocolate box or the red roses. The legend says this day was first associated with romantic love after the middle age, when the bishop Valentine refused to obey the emperor, Claudio II, who has forbidden marriages during the war, and continued to celebrate marriages secretly.When Valentine was found, he was arrested and sentenced to death. In his cell he received many letters from his young supporters who believe in love and marriage. It was also here that Valentine met the jailer’s daughter, which was blind, and fell in love. It’s been said that because of that love, the jailer’s daughter started to see again. Before he died, Valentine wrote to her a letter of goodbye, finishing it with "Your Valentine". The tradition of sending cards, which still remains today, started in the U.S, when in 1840, Esther Howland sold a big amount of greetings cards, dedicated to celebrate Valentine’s Day.
Pseudofruit (or Accessory fruit): Structure that develops from flowers, but in fact does not develop from an ovary. Cashews, apples and quince are pseudofruits because they are not derived from the ovaries; strawberries, because they are derived from the several ovaries of a single flower; pineapple, raspberries and figs develop from different parts of several flowers.
