Valentines Day

These days people think that February 14th is about giving chocolates and flowers and false love to people in your life. Even if you really do love the person Valentines Day is still a hassle. You dont give chocolate you dont love them. That's not what its about...

Back in the Roman Empire, they were having trouble with young strong men enlisting. the men wanted to stay home and start a family instead of going out and fighting. So the Empire banded marriage for anyone between 18-25. ONE man who was a minister was secretly marring the soldiers before they went off to war. When the government found out they had him beheaded. His name was Saint Valentine... He died on February 14th.

Valentines Day is about diffing laws against love and showing your special someone that you'll do anything for them.
