  5. Valentine's Day 2015

    Valentine's Day 2015
    The day of love is nearly upon us, have you got anything special for your valentine yet?Valentine's What is Valentine's Day? Valentine's Day is an annual celebration of love that takes place on 14th February. It is an entire day set aside for us to show appreciation for that special someone in our lives. Flowers will be sent from secret admirers, cards filled with romantic poems and beautiful gifts exchanged between partners. The origins of Valentine's Day are largely unknown as there were many Saints named Valentine, but none with a connection to romance. The closest link that can be made is to a St Valentine who was a Roman priest, martyred on February 14th of the year 270 CE. The connection to love was thought to have been made much later by English writer, Geoffrey Chaucer with his poem “Valentines” written in the 14th Century. Whatever the connection, the 14th February has been celebrated for centuries across the world with feasts and rituals relating to love and romance. Continue reading →
