Let your love sparkler with sparklers for Valentine’s Day! Every February 14th, men and women across the US celebrate their love on Valentine’s Day. From roses to chocolates, teddy bears to romantic dinners, every single nuance of this magic day is dedicated to love.

While our company has primarily been dedicated to offering wedding sparklers, sky lanterns, and wooden roses, we have noticed that very few companies have been catering to this growing trend of sparklers for Valentine’s Day. People are flocking in droves to the idea of wooden roses, mainly because they are preserved forever. Others are more interested in Valentine’s Day sparklers, the most popular of which are heart shaped sparklers. Nothing says “I love you” like a sparkling heart.
A Brief History of Valentine’s Day
Loosely based on Christian and ancient Roman traditions, Valentine’s Day is widely accepted as the day for displays of love and romance. Every February 14, throughout the United States and around the world, candy, flowers and other gifts are exchanged between loved ones. History shows us that this is done in the name of St. Valentine, but the real roots of this holiday are still somewhat of a mystery.
The Catholic Church recognizes at least three different saints named Valentine or Valentinus, all of whom were martyred. The most popular legend contends that Valentine was a priest who served during the third century in Rome. When Emperor Claudius II decided that single men were superior soldiers than ones with wives and families, he outlawed marriage for young men. Valentine defied Claudius and continued to perform marriages for young lovers in secret believing that Claudius was mistaken. When Valentine’s actions were discovered, Claudius ordered that he be put to death immediately.
How America Celebrates with Sparklers for Valentine’s Day
While there is no wrong way to show your love on Valentine’s Day, there are several traditions that have stood the test of time. By far, the most common tradition associated with Valentine’s Day is giving flowers; particularly roses. Another of the most common gifts is chocolate or candy, followed by jewelry. In combination with one or more of these gifts, it is also a popular choice to bring your date to dinner and out to a movie. The most recent tradition is using sparklers for Valentine’s Day, and the popularity of it is growing each year.
Marriage engagements are also a popular choice for Valentine’s Day. There really isn’t a more romantic day to “pop the big question” to your (hopefully) future wife, and if done properly, makes it really hard for them to shoot you down. Pop some champagne, light a few heart shaped sparklers, and hand her a bouquet of wooden roses. She is almost guaranteed to say yes.
