Happy Saint Valentine's day! Here is a little about the history of Valentine's day:
Some people think Saint Valentine was a Roman who was martyred for refusing to give up Christianity. He died on February 14th, 269 A.D. He had befriended the jailer's daughter and left her a farewell note, concluding with "From Your Valentine."
February 14th was also a day to honor Juno, the Queen of the Roman gods and goddesses. The Romans also knew her as the goddess of women and marriage.
Gradually, February 14 became the date for exchanging love messages and St. Valentine became the patron saint of lovers. The date was marked by sending poems and simple gifts such as flowers. There was often a social gathering or a ball.
In the United States, Miss Esther Howland is given credit for sending the first valentine cards. Commercial valentines were introduced in the 1800's and now the date is very commercialised. The town of Loveland, Colorado, does a large post office business around February 14. The spirit of good continues as valentines are sent out with sentimental verses and children exchange valentine cards at school.
I hope you have a nice Valentines filled with lots of hope, love and laughter!
Hello all. I make bookmarks, as you can probably tell from my username. I'll make one for you, just tell me colors, names and anything else, and I'll do the best I can. Don't worry; if you wish, I won't reveal your name.
