I think it's niceto know where the tradions for Valentines started. This tradition also goes back to Bishop Valentine, whilst awaiting his execution he fell in love with his jailors daugher Asterius, she was blind and as an act of faith Valentine restored her vision. Just before his execution he wrote her a farewll message "from your Valentine". after this many young romans wrote to their beloved with their affectionate greetings. The First Valentines card was sent in 1415AD by Charles Duke of Orleans. Will you send you loved one a card and/or present this year?

Don't think that a paper Valentine will be on our docket. We do usually celebrate with a bit of different dinner. Since it is on a Wednesday, we will celebrate on probably Saturday with dinner out. The kids and us you know. The kids when little would create paper Valentines and present them to us. Now we get a box of chocolate each mine a bit larger than the kids and go from there. Do love the Saint Valentine story though!!
