Ok, I am not sure how I truly feel about this day. Saint Valentine was beaten with clubs, stoned and then finally beheaded. Why? He was caught marrying Christian couples.. this was illegal at the time. His captor, Claudius II liked Valentine... Valentine made the mistake of trying to convert Claudius.. Valentine was a martyr for the Christian faith.
His tortuous murder was on February 14, 269 A.D.
Valentines Day was brought about by a Pope to remember all the martyred priests.
I once read that Valentines day is the day you tell people how you truly feel about them. hmm... Now I am not to sure about that.. But, I will enjoy that part of telling people you care about them.
I hope everyone looks at the true meaning of Valentine's Day, and not just expect the commercialized side of the day (expensive dinners, jewelry, chocolate).
Life is crazy here on the little farm. Chickens are eating eggs. We have been raising meat rabbits, but with the baby allergic to rabbit fur, we will be selling all the rabbits and bunnies. I sold some of the chickens, but we still have an egg eater ... I need to catch her in the act, then return the favor by serving fried chicken for dinner the next day.
