Valentine’s Day ranks up there with Groundhog Day and Earth Day in my book, meaning it isn’t in the ranking. But this morning I thought, why don’t I read up a bit on Saint Valentine and see if there’s something to chew on about this lovey-dovey day.
Well no one knows who the real Saint Valentine is — there are around 11 other saints by that name. The most likely originator was either a priest or a bishop, or was perhaps both, but either way, both third century men by the name Valentinus were beheaded. How’s that to end your rose-toting romance?
