Apart from a single day that seems to mean so much.
There are various theories on it's origin but the most accepted comes from the time of the Romans. During the reign of Claudius II (270 AD), it was decided that unmarried men made better soldiers. A Bishop - Valentine, went against these wishes and performed weddings in secret. He was as a result, jailed then executed by order of the Emperor on February 14th. It is alleged that whilst in jail he fell in love with the jailer's daughter. He wrote her a love note and signed it 'From your Valentine'.
The rest, as they say, is history.❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤
Every year, (in my previous blog) I would celebrate the symbol of love - the heart - each day, with a bit of waffle and a photo.
Today's photo was taken by Eldest - last summer, on a wonderfully hot day (yes, I know - what is one of those??!)
