Today is St Valentines Day but I guess you knew that already. What does it mean for you? Hearts, flowers, romantic gestures and cards? Something else? Or are you one of the cynics who say 'bah humbug' just an excuse for the stores and shops to commercialise the day to death and overkill romance? Maybe the day reminds you to do something a little romantic because life can become so busy to-ing and fro-ing and we may forget to factor in a little romance? Is it all about love of the romantic kind? Is it simply about declaring undying love for a partner or a spouse? I think its a lovely opportunity to say 'I love you' to parents, grand parents, children and good friends too!
And what of St Valentine, the patron saint of this special day? There is much mystery surrounding St Valentine. I have enjoyed reading something of the history and I hope you do too.
As for me, well I confess to being a hopeless romantic. I do enjoy the celebration of the day and the participation of it too.
Happy Valentines Day!
