So today is Valentines day and I did some research on it and found really interesting things. For example it came to be known as a day of romance in the 14th century. They are not sure if there were one or two people named Valentine whose name was used. Formal valentines messages appeared in the 1500's and by the 1700s commercially printed cards were being used.
You can read all about it here in the Britannica encyclopedia.
I also like the idea that it is not just a couples day. We need to celebrate love of all kinds and for me that includes the friendships I have created here.
So to you all Happy Valentines day
