Valentines's Day: A Celebration of Love

Happy Valentine's Day!  How much fun is it to celebrate this day and what it means to love?  Whether it be with your significant other, your loved family and friends, your loved little ones or all the above...Valentine's Day is a day to reserve for the importance of caring for one another and remind your loved ones how much they mean to you.

In looking back at where Valentine's Day actually originated, I found SO many different possible legends based on Valentine himself as well as the other Valentine's character we so often see, Cupid.  I really enjoyed reading a breakdown of them from the web site.  If you are interested, click here to view it.  But my personal favorite, the one I want to share with you all and remember and share with my children, is below:

Cupid has long played a role in the celebrations of love and lovers. He is known as a mischievous, winged child, whose arrows would pierce the hearts of his victims causing them to fall deeply in love. In ancient Greece he was known as Eros the young son of Aphrodite, the goddess of love and beauty. To the Roman's he was Cupid, and his mother Venus...  
Happy Valentine's Day to you all, 

Mommy Bridget
