Today is Valentine’s Day; a time to celebrate and glorify love. However, despite all those repetitive rituals of flowers, chocolates and dinner dates that will characterise todays Valentine’s Day, there will be a need to add a personal touch to the day for your loved one.
This takes me back to the day when love depended a lot more on creativity and sincerity. So, this here is an ode to the innocent and sweet love letters from the days when loving someone did not seem to cost much!
Even the ardent social network converts will agree. Don’t you miss the time of love letters, mostly at school? The face of love was so tangible and inseparable from pen and paper. The poor chap whose heart was bleeding in love, often took his time and chose his words carefully on what was always attractive on paper.
Remember writing pads? Yes, the lovesick person poured out his or her sweet-nothings on the cutest of them ever made. The words were at times grandiose, bombastic and misplaced yet somehow, the lovelorn were still able to squeeze them into their letters.
