THE LEGEND OF ST. VALENTINE

The reputation of Valentine’s Day–and the tale of its customer saint–is surrounded in key. We do know that Feb is actually recognized as a 30 days of loving endeavors, and that St. Valentine’s Day, as we know it nowadays, contains vestiges of both Religious and historical Roman custom. But who was St. Valentine, and how did he become associated with this historical rite?

The Catholic Cathedral identifies at least three different team known as Valentine or Valentinus, all of whom were martyred. One tale suggests that Valentine was a preacher who provided during the third millennium in The capital. When Emperor Claudius II made the decision that individual men made better military than those with spouses and family members, he banned wedding for younger men. Valentine, recognizing the disfavor of the decree, defied Claudius and ongoing to execute weddings for younger fans in key. When Valentine’s activities were found, Claudius requested that he be put to loss of life.

Other experiences declare that Valentine may have been murdered for trying to help Religious believers evade severe Roman jails, where they were often defeated and tormented. According to one tale, an locked up Valentine actually sent the first “valentine” introduction himself after he dropped motivated by a younger girl–possibly his jailer's daughter–who frequented him during his confinement. Before his loss of life, it is claimed that he had written her a correspondence finalized “From your Valentine,” a symbol that is still in use nowadays. Although the fact behind the Valentine stars is dirty, the experiences all highlight his attraction as a supportive, brave and–most importantly–romantic determine. By the Center Age groups, perhaps thanks to this popularity, Valentine would become one of the most well-known team in Britain and Italy.

Now I am going to tell you what my husband has said about this Dollar Shave Club.  I first want to tell you he is very picky and not a person to really try out new things.  He did look through the box when I gave it to him.  That as a good start, cause he usually doesn't even do that.  Then we both smelled them and he looked at them all.  Well he tried the post shave cream and did what it said to do.  He really LOVES the razors he had received.  I actually love the razors to.  He might just lose one! ( shhh, don't tell him).  He also tried a few of the other products this weekend and he does like the box of products he received.  So that is a good thing because like I said he is picky and hates to try new things.  So this Dollar Shave Club is well worth it!





I would like to take this minute to wrap up this post on the Dollar Shave Club with that it is so well worth the deal you will be getting.  Your man will look, smell and feel freshly cleaned and shaved for you.  Why should your man have all little cut marks from a old razor or be all red with a rash, when you can order this great box and it is delivered right to your door.  No fast runs to the store when your in a rush for a shave, no going without a shave if you have no time.  This will be just no worrying no more.  You will have it at your door every month if that is how you want it delivered.

ORIGINS OF VALENTINE’S DAY: A PAGAN FESTIVAL IN FEBRUARY

 While some believe that Valentine’s Day is well known in the center of Feb to honor the birthday of Valentine’s loss of life or burial–which probably happened around A.D. 270–others declare that the Religious cathedral may sensible to position St. Valentine’s food day in the center of Feb in an attempt to “Christianize” the questionable party of Lupercalia. Recognized at the ides of Feb, or Feb 15, Lupercalia was a infertility event devoted to Faunus, the Roman god of farming, as well as to the Roman creators Romulus and Remus.

To start the event, individuals the Luperci, your purchase of Roman clergymen, would collect at a holy cavern where the babies Romulus and Remus, the creators of The capital, were considered to have been taken care of by a she-wolf or lupa. The clergymen would compromise a goat, for infertility, and a dog, for filtration. They would then remove the goat’s cover up into pieces, dip them into the sacrificial veins and take to the roads, carefully hitting both females and plants areas with the goat cover up. Far from being afraid, Roman females accepted the contact of the conceals because it was considered to create them more rich in buy. Later in the day, according to tale, all the younger ladies in the town would position their titles in a big urn. The city’s bachelor's would each select a name and become combined for the season with his selected lady. These suits often led to wedding.


VALENTINE’S DAY: A DAY OF ROMANCE

Lupercalia live through the preliminary increase of Christianity and but was outlawed—as it was considered “un-Christian”–at the end of the 5th millennium, when Pope Gelasius announced Feb 14 St. Valentine’s Day. It was not until much later, however, that the day became for sure associated with really like. During the Center Age groups, it was generally considered in Italy and Britain that Feb 14 was the starting of birds’ propagation year, which included to the concept that the center of Valentine’s Day should be a day for romantic endeavors.

Valentine greetings were called long ago again as the Center Age groups, though published Valentine’s didn’t start to appear until after 1400. The earliest known valentine still most people was a poetry coded in 1415 by Charles, Fight it out of Orleans, to his spouse while he was locked up in the Structure of London, uk following his catch at the Fight of Agincourt. (The introduction is now aspect of the manuscript assortment of the English Selection in London, uk, Britain.) Several decades later, it is assumed that Master Gretchen V employed an author known as David Lydgate to write a valentine observe to Catherine of Valois.




I will also add a list of things a women would love on Valentine's day.  Like I always told my husband it is the amount you spend on a gift, it is the love you show me.  I have always loved making up some special thing to give to him and of course bought him something. But always we don't have a lot of extra money, so I just would love a small gesture.  Well on to the list of things.


  • Flowers (cut by your love)
  • Coupon booklet
  • Card or Poem
  • Walk along beach during sunset
  • Picnic
  • Drive along a road in the country
  • Homemade cake shaped as a heart
  • A romantic dinner with candles
  • Rose petals on the bed and candles
  • A whole body massage with oils
  • You can make a homemade book
  • Crochet a heart pillow (If you know how to. I personally don't but I seen my friends and looks awesome)
  • A rose petal wreath


There is a few things off the top of my head that us women would like.  Let me tell you ladies there is a lot you could also do for your man.  I know men seem so complicated at some times but they really have a sweet spot in them.  So some homemade chocolates, like fudge, peanut butter balls or heart shaped chocolates.  These are all so easy to make and then put them into a nice container you can get at a local Dollar Store.  They also would love a massage too and some coupons.  My hubby likes his coupons that I gave him years ago.  You need to make them creative and add some things in there that he don't really like to do around the house, so that way he knows it's a gift. Well I hope this helps and you all have a great Valentine's Day.
