Are we the only ones who think the time to write our shopping lists for Christmas was only a few days ago? It’s like December barely ended.
But we got through Christmas and New Year like champions, straight into January blues, took a short break from all that shopping (never mind the sales), and here we are… gift searching time, once again. Because Valentines’ day is upon us. Lovers day.
Do you know how do whole thing about Valentines’ day started? There was a certain bishop who lived and served under Claudie II. The emperor ordered his soldiers not to get married or engaged because that will serve as a distraction on the battlefield. Everybody obeyed him, except young Valentine who was only 22 years of age. He was famous for his companionship and kindness so even though his emperor orders it, he couldn’t have lived his life doing something he knew deep down in his core wasn’t right. He escaped emperors rage for a long time, but eventually he was caught and beheaded on February 14th. But the same as most ”true love” stories, this one also has kind of a happy end. The common folk proclaimed Valentine a saint after his death and celebrated therefore onwards 14th. of February as a national ”lovers’ day”.
If you were a part of people who weren’t a fan of Valentines’ day, we are sure that this tale of Valentine the saint at least for a tiny bit, changed your mind. Because one thing is for certain. Love needs to be celebrated. Every day. Any day. And it is good that there is a day like Valentines’. To remind us what love is and to remind us not to forget it on the other 364 days of the year.
