Valentines Day – The Festival of Love

Be My Valentine!

February 14th is Valentines Day, the annual festival of love.  The realists among us may associate this day with the lucrative invention of florists throughout the world but all romantics will know that the saint, Bishop Valentine of Terni, is responsible for this celebrated day.  Bishop Valentine lived in 3rd century AD in Rome, at a time when Christians were persecuted and murdered by the Roman Empire.  However, the Bishop still married couples according to the Christian rituals and gave them flowers from his garden in celebration.  St Valentine died on February 14th 268.
