VALENTINE’S DAY

FYI. I have been reading and this is what I found on Valentine’s Day. There are many opinons as to who was the original Valentine, with the most popular theory that it was a clergyman who was executed for secretly marrying couples in ancient Rome. In any event, in 496 A.D. Pope Gelawius set aside February 14 to honor St. Valentine became a patron saint lovers. In the 1840s, Esther Howland, a native of Massachuestss. is given credit for sending the first Valentine cards. The spitrit of love. continues as valentines are sent with sentimental verses and children exchange valentine cards at school. I saw a lot of people buying Roses. Are you one of them? What do you think about this day, what would make Valentine’s Day special for you?

  1. Dear Bah Humbug,

    Iam sorry you feel like that about Valentine’s Day. Would you like to share with the group? Maybe you have been burned? Maybe Cupid never shot you with the arrow of true Love? Maybe it will happen today? Then maybe not. Oh well.
