Maybe you do or maybe you don't.....Or maybe you hate all the hassle around it.....Or who knows you might be thinking.....Who the ..... is Valentine 😉
Or should I say Valentinus.....It seems to have been a common name in ancient Roman times. As far as history is concerned there seem to be numerous Saints and various stories connected to this date.
There have been a lot of debates on 2 holy martyrs of the same name.....Priest Valentine of Rome and Bishop Valentine of Terni......Both dating from about the 3th century.
Some say they are 2 separate persons.....Others say there was only one of them.....And then some believe they are one and the same person.
The only thing that is certain from traditions is that Valentino was a good man that blessed young couples and performed miracles of love.
I actually was quite surprised to see that the celebration of this day dates so far back 😦
I found that the oldest "Valentine" that was found dates from the 15th century and was written by a man named Charles duke of Orléans written to his wife.....He wrote "Je suis desja d'amour tanné - Ma tres doulce Valentinée".....Translated that means..... I am already sick of love - My very gentle Valentine.
A bit cheesy if you ask me haha.....But then again maybe that's what it is all about 😋
