St. Valentine was imprisoned as he conducted weddings of soldiers(as per wiki).
St. Valentine’s Day began as a liturgical celebration of one or more early Christian saints named Valentinus. The most popularmartyrology associated with Saint Valentine was that he was imprisoned for performing weddings for soldiers who were forbidden to marry and for ministering to Christians, who were persecuted under the Roman Empire; during his imprisonment, he is said to have healed the daughter of his jailer Asterius. Legend states that before his execution he wrote “from your Valentine” as a farewell to her.
Ironically even today many have guts to beat you up if this day is celebrated. To people who think valentines day is the new reason for rape, to those who don’t know the difference between love , sex and rape all my hatred channelized towards them! If there was a world hate day I guess it will have more cards sold than today 4 alarmingly increasing no of people like them !!
Valentines day is not just to buy balloons or cakes or gifts and flaunt your love! It is a day to remember anyone whom you like/ liked/ love/ loved a lot. A chance to kill ego and love all over again, to revive the love and relive the moments and reveal what you think if you have not got chance to express what you feel from many days. Be it your friend , better half , bro , sis , mom , dad just sit and remember “The best” moment where you felt special due to their presence. Am sure you are already smiling! ♥ 🙂 Happy valentines day . Try to love those who deserve to be loved!
|Flowers and teddies always bring smiles 🙂|
