Sweetheart Day "Saint Valentines Day"

Valentines Day IN the U.S. A.
I have not thought about why we have Valentines Day for a long time. I do not know if I have ever known just why except to honor our Sweethearts on a specific day of the year. Just who was St. Valentine? My Webster Dictionary as written it that he was a Christian martyr of Rome, 3 A.D. Wow! I should have known that he was a special person because Love is what it is all about. Right? Every year our family and friends honor each other on February 14th. It is one of the days in the year that folks spend more money on gifts for others than any other day except Christmas and Mothers Day.
