Champagne Valentine’s Day is set apart as a traditionally romantic holiday. It is an occasion for sweethearts to express their fondness for each other, and while this is important in any relationship, sometimes these gestures can lead to unintentional injuries. The two items that you are most likely to see on Valentine’s Day – candles and wine – are also the leading causes of Valentine’s Day accidents. Candle fires start more than 7,000 household fires each year, often resulting in severe property damage and even fatalities. Candles that are left unattended can easily cause fires, particularly if they are placed near highly flammable objects such as pillows, curtains, or tablecloths. Always exercise caution when lighting candles so as to avoid unwanted fires and burn injuries. To learn more about burn injuries, please visit our burn injury webpage.

Driving while under the influence of alcohol is another leading cause of Valentine’s Day accidents. Many couples indulge in a few drinks while they are out celebrating the occasion, and it is not uncommon for individuals to decide to drive themselves home, even while they are under the influence. No matter how slight, any amount of alcohol can affect your reaction time and impair your ability to operate a motor vehicle. If you are going out on Valentine’s Day, exercise caution while occupying the road to ensure the safety of you and your loved ones. Click here to learn more about drunk driving accidents.

Origins Of Valentine’s Day

The origins of Valentine’s Day are not entirely clear. According to Smithsonian Magazine, a Christian martyr, Geoffrey Chaucer, and the mating patterns of birds all contributed to the tradition that is now known as Valentine’s Day. In the Catholic faith tradition, February 14th is the feast day, or a day set aside to honor St. Valentine, after the 3rd Century Roman martyr who lost his life on that day. Several centuries later, a line that was written by Geoffrey Chaucer inadvertently linked the feast of St. Valentine with the mating patterns of birds, thereby associating the day with romance. Since Chaucer’s time, Valentine’s Day has grown into an occasion for couples to exchange tokens of affection, and it remains a popular holiday in the United States.

Unexpected Accidents

Macaron and wedding ring While motor vehicle accidents and candle fires might be, if not anticipated, at least common accidents, these are not the only ways in which an injury can occur on Valentine’s Day. The holiday is a perfect opportunity to try new things, particularly new foods. Individuals with known food allergies should take care that any foods they try do not contain potentially harmful ingredients. Emergency rooms have also reported numerous cases of individuals admitted for choking after accidentally swallowing hidden engagement rings. In the same vein, accidents have resulted from attempts to surprise others. Individuals that attempt daring scenes by climbing on balconies, trees, or even boats face the potential hazard of falling. Injuries such as concussions, sprains, bruises, and breaks are typical for this type of accident and often require emergency medical care.

As a traditionally romantic day, Valentine’s Day is often a day when couples decide to try new things. Activities such as roller skating, ice skating, bowling, and ziplining, while a great deal of fun, are also potentially hazardous for individuals who are new to the sports. No one wants to be the one to ruin an evening of fun, but accidents do happen. As with falls, serious injuries can accompany these types of excursions.
