Are you a diligent planner with all your Valentine's Day arrangements already made? Or are you an optimistic procrastinator hoping for a last minute brilliant idea that ends up working out perfectly? Either way, you're in luck, because the link below will provide you with plenty of great ideas for an exciting weekend celebrating this holiday.
Here's some interesting background about the holiday: The origin of Valentine's Day and the story of its patron saint date back to the third century but at shrouded in mystery with bits of ancient Roman and Christian traditions. One popular story involves St. Valentine who was imprisoned for performing weddings for soldiers who were forbidden to marry. And during his imprisonment, he healed his jailer's daughter, for whom he developed an affection. An embellishment to this story starts that before his execution he wrote her a farewell letter signed "Your Valentine."
Well, whether you're in a relationship or not, loving and being loved is something we can all participate in. Giving a stranger an unexpected smile and getting one back, lending a hand when needed or hearing a genuine "thank you" ... these simple acts of kindness don't require planning, cost nothing, and yet cast a bit of sunshine on a winter's celebration of Valentine's Day! We hope your holiday is a wonderfully bright day!
