All About Cupid

Feb 12, 2015

Cupid makes the world a much more loving place. He's hard at work throughout the whole year, but his busiest day falls on Valentine's Day. Learn more about this holiday dude right here!

The Matchmaker Works His Magic

Cupid, who also goes by the name Eros, may be the god of love but he looks more like a baby! With a rosy face and chubby body, he's the most famous Valentine's symbol around and is popular in books, poems and art. He has white wings and is armed with a golden bow and arrows, which signify love and desire. When he shoots 'em at people, they fall truly, madly, deeply in love! In Classic mythology Cupid is the son of the Roman Goddess of Love, Venus. As her son he obviously has some related talents, he is the God of affection and attraction (basically cuddles and crushes, he's definitely a fun guy to hang with!)

The Highs of the Job

There's nothing better than falling in love and that's why Cupid has one of the best jobs in the world! Although love is sweet and wonderful, it can also be cheesier than cheddar, but Cupid knows how to keep things fun by pullin' a ton of pranks! Sometimes, he'll even fire his arrows at two strangers who aren't interested in each other and make 'em fall head over heels!

The Lows of the Job

Cupid's job can suck cuz he has to shoot people through the heart with his arrow - that's why love hurts sometimes! On top of that, he's so busy helping other people fall in love that he doesn't have time for a girlfriend. But he never gets sad or lonely cuz he's always surrounded by - or hovering around - happy people!

Cupid gets to be around people in love all the time!Cupid gets to be around people in love all the time!
 

How Much $$$ Does Cupid Make?

Cupid doesn't get paid - at least not with cash. In fact, he doesn't care about the green stuff cuz he's rewarded when people fall in love and spread their happiness to others. In this cherub's eyes, money doesn't make the world go 'round - love does!

Although I think a tree stump has more brains than the two of them combined, I would rather have Trump in office. I really dislike the guy, but his ideas are more my taste than Clinton's. He also seems sturdier than she is, mentally I mean (and physically too ofc but that doesn't matter).  I also gained more respect for Donald Trump over the past week or two.  I don't know how many of you are aware, but Louisiana was recently affected by a very bad flood. As natural disasters do, it destroyed housings and people's personal belongings and took lives. The damage to them was nowhere near as bad as that, but some of my family was affected by this flood, which I guess could give me a bit of a bias.    Donald Trump personally went down to Baton Rouge and handed out toys for children, food, and clothes, among other things. He also made a contribution fund to the state's flood relief charity. What did Hillary Clinton do? Go on Jimmy Kimmel and make fun of Trump quotes. Even if it was only to give himself a better name, the fact that he was so generous enough to provide for these poor people when Clinton, and even Obama, did not would definitely earn my vote if I were legal enough to participate in elections (which I hate to say because I don't care for both Trump and politics in general).       Though, I'd rather my cat be president.
