Happy Valentine’s Day!
“Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage.”- Lao Tzu
I’m sure most people think today is about chocolates, flowers & presents, but there’s a bit of “history” behind the day.
Thanks to the History Channel who summed it up quite nicely…
“Each year on February 14th, many people exchange cards, candy, gifts or flowers with their special “valentine.” The day of romance we call Valentine’s Day is named for a Christian martyr and dates back to the 5th century, but has origins in the Roman holiday Lupercalia.”
And, who knew there were different meanings to the different colors of roses! I saw on my fellow planner/friend’s Facebook yesterday some information about it which gave me the idea to dig a little deeper into it.
While I was at it, I found out that JUNE is National Rose Month!
