Happy Valentines Day

Saint Valentine's Day better known as Valentine's Day occurs the 14th of February every year. The holiday originated from a Christian feast day that honors one or more early saints named Valentinus This day is celebrated around the world but is not a holiday that brings lots of attention in any country.

Saint Valentine of Rome was imprisoned for performing weddings for soldiers who were forbidden to marry and for ministering to Christians who were persecuted under the Roman empire. During the imprisonment Saint Valentine healed the daughter of his jailer and before his execution wrote a card and signed it "Your Valentine" to say good bye.

The 14th century in the time period of brotherly love Valentines day become associated with romantic love. Later, in the 18th century England, it became an occasion where lovers expressed their love for each other with an offering of flowers, sweets and greeting cards. The greeting cards became known as valentines.

While the Valentines day of the past have had their share on the dark side my hopes is that you have a great Valentines day full of love
