February 14th is Valentine’s Day and we all know this date. But why?
The Short History
Valentine’s Day does have a fascinating (if horrible) history.
You, of course, know that the real Saint Valentine had absolutely nothing to do with it. – Yep, there’s no legit evidence connecting him to anything having to do with love.
Emperor Claudius II executed two men — both named Valentine — on Feb. 14 of different years in the 3rd century A.D. Their martyrdom was honored by the Catholic Church with the celebration of St. Valentine’s Day.
Top this horror back-story with the rampant commercialisation and annoying hashtags #blessed – some people just feel compelled to hate it.
It is an opportunity – or excuse – for declarations of love.
Joy or humiliation may accompany such declarations of love.
The excitement is in working out whether it will be “joy” or “humiliation”.
No Room For “No Opinion”
Valentine’s Day is something people either love or loathe. If you’ve been on the wrong side of the Joy or Humiliation equation, then you probably are a bit scarred.
If You’re Into Chocolate…
Valentine’s Day is a good “warm-up” to the real “festival of chocolate” that is – Easter.
If you like your chocolate heart-shaped and wrapped in red foil, then Valentine’s Day is great.
