Many believe, Valentine’s Day was created by greetings card companies just to sell cards and candies. There are more historical theories to the start of this holiday of love, however.

According to one legend, Valentine actually sent the first “valentine” greeting himself. While in prison, it is believed that Valentine fell in love with a young girl (who may have been his jailor’s daughter) who visited him during his confinement. Before his death, it is alleged that he wrote her a letter, which he signed “From your Valentine,” an expression that is still in use today.

That is pretty romantic!  

I have heard seasoned couples say that Valentine’s Day is for amateurs, and they no longer celebrate. I still love the holiday though, and why not have a day set aside to remind each other that you are still in love? I would love to hear how you feel about V-day.  Do you celebrate it?  

This is what my Valentine left for me this morning. :)

    • Godiva, yum!    If I’m lucky, hubby may make a pitstop on the way home from work to grab a card/flowers.  

      I usually get the grandkids something these days happy

    • What a nice gift! Happy post Valentine’s Day!

      I love to celebrate.heart Valentine’s Day was celebrated by me decorating my home starting with a heart-shaped wreath on the front door  to heart-shaped dishes, making “sweet treats” and giving gifts and  making cards for family and friends. Another opportunity for me to express my love and gratitude!

      An act of kindness is a gift given
