How Do You Celebrate Valentine’s Day? By Susan Hanniford Crowley

Next Saturday is St. Valentine’s Day!

There are different legends of St. Valentine but the one that appears the most popular is that he was a priest in Rome and was thrown into prison for marrying soldiers to their sweethearts which was forbidden. While in prison awaiting his execution ordered by the Roman emperor, he healed the blind daughter of his jailer. Before his execution, he wrote a note to her (Julia) and signed it “Your Valentine.”

St. Valentine’s Day has been celebrated with notes of love and devotion, poetry, cards, flowers and candy.  Some cards through the ages have been fanciful to romantic.
