It’s Friendship Friday! This is the day to focus on giving back or paying it forward.
Do you know the history of Saint Valentine? He was a martyr that was killed for wedding men at what was considered to be too young of an age. He argued that when you find love no age limitations can be put on it.
Geoffrey Chaucer, the English poet, was the first to record St. Valentine’s Day as a day of celebrating romance. This was composed in his poem “Parliament of Foules” in 1375. After this sending Valentine greetings gradually became more popular. The earliest known Valentine greeting in the Americas was in the early 1700s.
I say all this to give you a bit of perspective of why we do what we do. So with Valentine’s Day in just two days I would encourage you to pen a note or send a card, romantic or not, to a dear friend or loved one in honor of Saint Valentine.
With inky fingers,
