is today... or so they say! personally i think it's just a hype from the chocolate and gift dept. of the corporate world.... but alas there is a history..... several actually.... but starting out with The Feast of Lubercus, a pagan celebration... check out the link if you'd like to learn more about Valentine's day....
"Oft have I heard both youth and virgin say
Birds choose their mates, and couples too, this day;
But by their flight I never can divine,
When I shall couple with my Valentine.
sad part of all of this... is that it really has come down to corporate greed... buy buy buy and your sweetheart will love you forever.... ahem... pardon me while i get into all of that hype...
whew... now that i have that out of my system... i feel so much better... even to the point that i don't need that 10 lb box of chocolates or the dozen roses... if only my dogs could send me some :D
been cruising through some more blogs... i've discovered blog hunting really is quite fun and sometimes informative... Wanderin' Weeta is a pretty fun site... she's into birds birds and more birds.. and did i mention bugs too... she's taken some pretty cool photos and videos of some insects...
