Valentines trivia


Today is Valentine’s Day, the day on which we celebrate love. The holiday was named in part for an early Christian priest, St. Valentine, who was martyred for his beliefs on this day in about 270 A.D. According to legend, the priest fell in love with his jailer’s daughter, and just before his execution, he wrote her a love letter signed, “from your Valentine.” (from The Writers Almanac, Feb 14th, 2014)

Let me know what you think!
