You all have heard of Valentine’s Day, of course, but did you know there’s another day that celebrates love? That’s right — April 23 is Lover’s Day and it’s perfect for all of you who didn’t get enough of that sweet, sweet loving in February. Like Valentine’s Day, the origin of Lover’s Day can be found in a Catholic saint — St. George, to be precise. According to legend, St. George killed a dragon and a rosebush grew from the ground where its blood fell. St. George then picked one of the roses and gave it to a princess to remember him by. So gruesome and sweet, amirite?
In honor of St. George’s chivalry, Spaniards give each other roses on April 23. It’s traditional for men to give roses to their wives, girlfriends, moms — any women in their lives. And, traditionally, women give their lovers books, although these days the book giving can be for any gender. (The book part comes from the fact that both celebrated author Miguel de Cervantes and William Shakespeare died on April 23.)
But if you’re not in Spain — or even if you just want a sexier way to celebrate Lover’s Day — here are four Lover’s Day deals from awesome sex companies.
