Remember This Day... 14th February | AD

Disclosure - This is collaboration post with the infographic supplied by Cash Lady.
Happy Valentines Day. Today is the 14th February and traditionally on this day we celebrate with our loved ones and let them know just how much we love them. Typically roses are the flower of choice for your special someone or you can choose from a range of 'Valentines Day' gifts to show how much you care. 

The 14th February is not just a day of romance and love as it is also a day to remember some very important events, birthdays, deaths and even divorces, that have happened on this day. 

In 1929 the Valentines Massacre happened when 7 gangsters were killed.

In 1984 Torvill and Dean performed their Gold winning performance of the Bolero in the Winter Olympics. 

The 14th February is also the date of a few famous birthdays including Alan Parker, Tim Buckley, Stelios Haji-Ioannou and most recently Simon Pegg.

James Cook and Dolly the Sheep unfortunately died on this day back in 1779 and 2003.

Choosing to get married on Valentines Day is very romantic and there have been quite a few celebrity Valentines Day weddings over the years. 

In 1984 Elton John and Renate Blauel married in Sydney, Australia.

In 1991 Meg Ryan and Dennis Quaid tied the knot. 

In the city of love Paris, Salma Hayek and Francois- Henri Pinault married in 2009.

Most recently in 2018 Amy Schumer and Chris Fischer married in Malibu. 

Valentines is not all about the romance for Robin Givens and Mike Tyson or Prince and Mayte Garcia as they were granted divorce on this day. 

No matter how you are spending your Valentines Day I hope you enjoy it. 



  1. Wow, I didn't know Amy Schumer was married. She is a good comedian. I quite like the movies she's been in. Have a great Valentine's Day.

  2. Wow this has really made me think of the 14th February
    From a totally different perspective. It’s nice to think about it as more than just Valentine’s Day.

  3. So many different things on Valentine's Day! I know a couple of people that have their birthdays on Feb 14th too!

  4. I loved reading all the different things that happened on today's date. We don't do Valentine's Day so this is much more my thing.

  5. what a cool " on this day" I love Meg Ryan so its sop good to know that she married on our anniversary day x ( Pati Robins )

  6. Oh wow, 14th Feb definitely has had some wonderful events, didn't know Salma got married on V-day in Paris, how romantic.

  7. Ooo I love this. What a fab and fun Valentine's day post. I love Whitney Houston and her music x

  8. I live reading stuff like this. We don’t go mad for Valentine’s Day but we do have a special brekkie for the kids and get chocolates/flowers :)

  9. It would seem that although it is romantic to get married on Valentine's Day, it doesn't guarantee that your marriage will be any happier or longer lasting than marriages that take place on other days of the year.

  10. Seems that getting married on Valentine's day is no guarantee that your marriage will last. Or that your husband will not divorce you and marry a man.


Thanks for your comments. I love reading them :)
