According to one legend, Saint Valentine actually sent the first "valentine" greeting himself. While in prison, it is believed that Valentine fell in love with a young girl — who may have been his jailor's daughter — who visited him during his confinement. Before his death, it is alleged that he wrote her a letter, which he signed "From your Valentine," an expression that is still in use today. Although the truth behind the Valentine legends is murky, the stories certainly emphasize his appeal as a sympathetic, heroic, and, most importantly, romantic figure. It's no surprise that by the Middle Ages, Valentine was one of the most popular saints in England and France.
Isn't it interesting that most of the symbols of Valentines
are all things that women love......what does valentines mean for a man???????
There are many reasons why Valentines Day is popular. According to the Greeting Card Association, an estimated one billion valentine cards are sent each year, making Valentine's Day the second largest card-sending holiday of the year and of course it is a well known fact that it is a florist dream or nightmare but most of all....its a time to remember to say those three little words....I love you
for those whose love life lacks this may represent your particular feelings. I try to remember that just like Christmas and other family holidays it may not be a good time for some, so no matter your circumstance, just wanted you to know...........I wish you
