Valentine’s Day

Valentine’s Day, also called Saint Valentine’s Day or the Feast of Saint Valentine, is celebrated annually on February 14. Originating as a Western Christian feast day honoring one or two early saints named Valentinus, Valentine’s Day is recognized as a significant cultural, religious, and commercial celebration of romance and romantic love in many regions around the world, although it is not a public holiday in any country.

“I’ve realized that although Valentine’s Day can be a cheesy money-making stint to most people, it’s a day of expressing love across the world. It doesn’t have to only be between lovers, but by telling a friend that you care, or even an old person that they are still appreciated.”

~ Reeva Steenkamp– 19 August 1983 – 14 February 2013) was a South African model.

Valentine’s Day is this week, so it is the topic of my quotes for today!

First, I love the quote above because it talks about showing people you care even if they are not lovers, partners, family or even friends.

Love is a strong emotion that can heal people when it is offered to them — honestly and without expectations.

I read a story today about a young man who opened up his house to a homeless stranger who was sleeping on his doorstep.  It was a lovely story as the young man helped this older man find his daughter, and of course, they were reunited in love.

All it took was a little love from a stranger!

Let’s spread some love around this Valentine’s Day.  You never know who it will help!!

I want to close this section by one final (humorous) quote:

“All you need is love. But a little chocolate now and then doesn’t hurt.”

~Charles M. Schulz — November 26, 1922 – February 12, 2000), was an American cartoonist and creator of the comic strip Peanuts
