What is the meaning of Valentine's Day.
If you look at Wikipedia, it states that it was an account of Saint Valentine of Rome who was imprisoned for performing weddings for soldiers, which was forbidden. Then made popular in the 14th century by Geoffrey Chaucer and the giving of gifts to lovers.
To me the day has many meanings for me. The first meaning my love of celebrating holidays. It comes from my Mother that decorated for every holiday and ensured that each one was special.
When Valentine's day arrived we would each receive a Valentine and a box of candy on our dinner plate. Simple and sweet with a heart felt lovely message inside the card.
The second meaning is that it is about a month away from St Patrick's Day. The day I met my Husband (it was actually March 16th) at a St Patrick's Day parade, 21 years ago. The love of my life and my biggest fan. I guess St Patrick's day is my Valentine's day!💚
