I Spy Valentine’s Day

by Sherry Riter in Holiday

Saint Valentine’s Day is an annual holiday celebrated on February 14th in honor of intimate love and affection. The holiday was established in 496 AD by Pope Gelasius and was named after one or more early Christian martyrs named Valentine. On this day, flowers, cards, chocolates and candies (also known as “Valentines”) are given as tokens of caring and love.

Happy Valentine's Day. My gift was that hubby was released from the hospital last night. We'll celebrate later in the week when he gets his energy back. We had a birthday party for my son today anyway, so I'm tired from that already and have my fill of good tasting bad-for-me food.

Thanks for making my blog the featured one on Blogntweet this week. I'll Twitter that now. 😀
