You know I was coming with some truth for you. Again as always, it's ok not to know, its shame not to want to know. They key is...once you do find out the truth do you keep doing the same thing which doesn't make sense or do you make a change for the better.
Now ... I don't celebrate Valentine’s day because I'm not going to let society and Capitalism tell me when I should shower that lady in my life with gifts of love and joy. If this person really is special to you, then the showering of love and gifts should not happen on a day Capitalist use to pimp your pockets of your finances. It's estimated that "SUCKERS" spend over 14.2 billion dollars celebrating something they have no clue how the day even came to be.
On a side note, if people really knew the truth about Valentine’s Day they'd think twice about celebrating it. I encourage folks to do some research and understand the truth behind exactly what it is that you are celebrating. Valentine’s Day stems from Lupercalia who killed his girlfriend and stabbed her in the heart with an arrow out of a rage of jealousy.
|Lupercalia Roman Celebration|
The Catholic Church changed the story around like they did with the pagan (Christ-Mess and St. Nicholas story), that St. Valentine was a priest who served during the third century in Rome. When Emperor Claudius II decided that single men made better soldiers than those with wives and families, he outlawed marriage for young men — his crop of potential soldiers.
Valentine, realizing the injustice of the decree, defied Claudius and continued to perform marriages for young lovers in secret. When Valentine's actions were discovered, Claudius ordered that he be put to death, therefore making him the CATHOLIC martyr St. Valentine.
So, know what you are celebrating because when you know the truth behind it you may become appalled like (i.e. Easter, Thanks-killing Day, Christ-Mess, etc...)
