Happy Valentine's Day

A friend of mine posted something on facebook, and it made me think...that a lot of the holidays are after religious people or events...and for those who are against religion really shouldn't be celebrating holidays...but in the material world, we get caught up in the hype of the world and forget what these holidays really mean....St. Valentine's is a day of celebrating a feast which was started in the year 496 by Pope Gelasius.  They don't really know who or what it was celebrating specifically, but it has been linked to several references of Valentine, and also superceded a pagan holiday.  Anyways, Chaucer (the poet) started celebrating the feast on February 14, as a day of Romantic love....

and so...here we are...

Happy Valentine's Day!

I got this idea from Mary Brown (and Connie Babbert) from their blogs..and it is so cute!  We made this for our Superbowl party, and I made them for my co-workers for Valentine's day...
