{the truth about st.valentine}

Listening to NPR on my drive to work, I found out who St.Valentine is so I thought I would share.

This definition is from Wikipedia.

Valentine's Day is a holiday celebrated on February 14. In North America and Europe, it is the traditional day on which lovers express their love for each other by sending Valentine's cards, presenting flowers, or offering confectionery. The holiday is named after two early Christian martyrs named Valentine. The day became associated with romantic love in the circle of Geoffrey Chaucer in High Middle Ages, when the tradition of courtly love flourished.

My favorite part of the day is an excuse to eat a lot of dark chocolate.
