Valentine’s Day And The Story Behind It.

Well it seems I might have to revamp my feelings on Valentine’s Day after all.  I did a little bit of research(really quite minimal) and found an actual romantic story behind one of my most disliked holidays.

According to one article on Wikipedia(and you know that they know it all):

St. Valentine’s Day began as a liturgical celebration of one or more early Christian saints named Valentinus. The most popular martyrology associated with Saint Valentine was that he was imprisoned for performing weddings for soldiers who were forbidden to marry and for ministering to Christians, who were persecuted under the Roman Empire; during his imprisonment, he is said to have healed the daughter of his jailer Asterius. Legend states that before his execution he wrote “from your Valentine” as a farewell to her.

Now how romantic is that?  Not the execution of course, that’s not a whole lot of fun, but the whole story.  You can click here to read more on Valentine’s Day history.   I am still not a big fan of Valentine’s Day (other than its my son’s birthday, which makes it awesome) but I think that it gives me at least a little better perspective on it.  Do you like Valentine’s Day?  What’s your most disliked holiday and why?  Comment below and let me know if I’m the only strange one out there!
