Ο Άγιος Βαλεντίνος είναι ο άγιος του Έρωτα
Agios Valentinos er kjærlighetenes helgen
St Valentinos is the saint of love

I did not know much about Valentines day when I was very young. Did some of my friends know? But I think it is a “thing” that will go on, because it makes good business to the shops and (maybe still) the post office.
In a Norwegian newspaper I read that the post office had introduced this tradition in Norway.
Here it is now very popular, specially amongst the young ones, but they mostly uses their mobile phones.

Wikipedia; “Valentine’s Day, also called Saint Valentine’s Day or the Feast of Saint Valentine,[1] is an annual holiday celebrated on February 14. It originated as a Western Christian liturgical feast day honoring one or more early saints named Valentinus, and is recognized as a significant cultural and commercial celebration in many regions around the world, although it is not a public holiday in any country.”

Valentine’s Day: Quotations

Love is composed of a single soul inhabiting two bodies.
-Aristotle

Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength,
while loving someone deeply gives you courage.
-Lao Tzu

My bounty is as boundless as the sea,
My love as deep; the more I give to thee,
The more I have, for both are infinite.
-William Shakespeare, Romeo and Juliet

How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.
-Elizabeth Barrett Browning

AND AS John Lennon would say;

Val

and not think of this terrible Massacre;

“St. Valentine’s Day Massacre

In Chicago, gunmen in the suspected employment of organized-crime boss Al Capone murder seven members of the George “Bugs” Moran North Siders gang in a garage on North Clark Street. The so-called St. Valentine’s Day Massacre stirred a media storm centered on Capone and his illegal Prohibition-era activities and motivated federal authorities to redouble their efforts to find evidence incriminating enough to take him off the streets.”  More you may read on; www.history.com  

Wish you a happy Valentines Day!
Sunny, light weather here, +17C at 09.30 morning.
I will walk Pasxa and the MOLOS music lunch!

Take Care!
