Happy Valentines Day ...

I know ... my little Angel's hair is a bit strange but there is lots of Love in those Rose Wreaths he is tossing. Let's do a little History now.

This day was originally a Pagan Festival named after two early Christian martyrs named Valentine. It became associated with Romantic Love in the Middle Ages. Today is the second largest card sending day of the year ... after Christmas. And it's estimated that men spend twice as much on their Valentines as women.


  1. I wonder if that angel is a distant relative to Blagoyevich (the hair, you know....)

    LOL. Just kidding.

    Happy Val Day to you and Ron! :-)

  2. What a lovely, vintage Valentine...and thanks for the lesson. I get caught up in the "romance factor" and forget there is more to it.
    Your sky photo yesterday was ominous and beautiful.
    Happy Valentine's Day!

  3. P.S. I tagged you for a "Husband Meme" today. You can write about Ron!
