  • Valentine’s Day started during the 3rd Century A.D. when two Ancient Romans, both named Valentine, who were executed by the emperor on February 14 of different years.  Their martyrdom was honored by the Catholic Church with the celebration of Valentine’s Day. The celebration was called the Feast of Lupercalia. The holiday did not become romantic until 1382, when Geoffrey Chaucer wrote his poem Parliament of Foules. It is this poem that was linked to romantic love.

    How do you spend your Valentine’s Day?  Getting flowers or chocolate, going out to dinner or getting a special gift from your loved one is always nice.  Have you ever thought to pass the feeling of being loved to someone else?  This could be an acquaintance, a good friend, a family member,a partner or spouse or even a neighbor.  Many people are alone and isolated and don’t get to feel the love like you might. Passing the love around would make this world a better place.
