Happy Valentine’s Day (2.14.13)

Happy Valentine’s Day!


For Valentine’s Day, whether you surprise your sweetie with something romantic or send a heartfelt hello to a friend—people appreciate your effort to make them feel special. And it’s a lot easier to send a Valentine now than it was in 270 A.D.  The ruler of the Roman Empire thought single men made better soldiers, so he didn’t want them to marry.  Bishop Valentine performed secret wedding ceremonies anyway…until he was executed on February 14.  A true romantic, Valentine wrote a love note to his jailor’s daughter, signed “From Your Valentine.”  We no longer have to go to such extremes to show our love, but it’s still sweet (and sometimes adorable) to make the effort.  What’s the craziest thing you’ve ever done for love?
