Valentine's Day - Share the Love

Did you know?

Valentine's Day is actually known as Saint Valentine's Day, a holiday observed on February 14 honoring one or more early Christian martyrs named Saint Valentine; Valentine of Rome & Valentine of Terni. It was first established by Pope Gelasius I in 496 AD and first became associated with romantic love in the circle of Geoffrey Chaucer in the High Middle Ages, when the tradition of courtly love flourished.
