Happy Valentine's Day

I thought it would be nice to find out a bit about Valentine's day and the meaning behind it...

One legend goes that the Romans threw a priest named Valentine in prison for his teachings. On February 14th, Valentine was beheaded not only because he was Christian, but also because he had supposedly cured the jailer's daughter of her blindness. The night before he was executed he wrote her a farewell letter, signing it "From Your Valentine" It is traditionally a day where lovers express their love for one another by presenting flowers, chocolates, and cards.

Happy Valentine’s Day!
