"Love Is in the Air"-- a new exhibit opens at the Saratoga History Museum on January 14.
Much to see.
The new exhibit covers some of the ways people celebrate Valentine's day around the world. The exhibit includes the history of Valentine's day as well as a collection of vintage Valentines. The display is sure to bring back memories of creating valentines out of paper doilies and sampling "savory" white paste!
How others celebrate!
Find out how other countries celebrate Valentine's day. As an example, in Argentina they celebrate Valentine's day but they also have a longer celebration known as "Sweetness Week" in July. During Sweetness Week, friends and lovers exchange kisses for a candy! Bulgaria celebrates "San Trifton Zartari" which means
"day of winemakers." They celebrate with a glass of wine or two from local winemakers. You don't have a special someone?
In Estonia, February 14 is "Friend's Day" honoring friends and significant others. If you don't have someone special you can take a ride on the "Love Bus"-- kind of a blind date on wheels. Singles board the Love Bus at various stops throughout the day and wait onboard hoping to meet that special someone. And, of course, February 14 is Paul Masson, famous Saratoga vintner's birthday--come find out othe Saratoga traditions.
Be sure to visit the gift shop.
Buy your special someone or treat yourself to a local history book, pretty notecards, or the gift of Saratoga Historical Foundation membership while visiting the museum.
