Valentine’s Day

leave a comment »

This day has been a traditional holiday of love for 1700 years. Valentine is word of the day by Your Dictionary:

February 14 was a Roman feast day that mysteriously became associated with two saints named Valentine in the 3rd century. One was a Roman priest and physician killed during the persecution of Christians by Claudius II. The other St. Valentine was a bishop of Terni, also martyred in Rome but his relics were remanded to Terni. (It is possible the two saints were the same person.) The association with love derives from the fact that February 14 was traditionally taken as the beginning of the mating season of birds. As Chaucer noted in “Parliament of Foules” (1381): “For this was on seynt Volantynys day Whan euery bryd comyth there to chese his make.” (For this was on Saint Valentine’s day when every bird comes there to choose his mate.)
