It wasn't until 1537 that St. Valentine's Day was
declared an official holiday. England's King
Henry VIII declared February 14th a holiday.


The oldest known Valentines were sent in 1415 A.D.
by the Duke of Orleans to his French wife while he
was imprisoned in the Tower of London. It is still on
display in a museum in England.

Already knew it? Take a quiz!!

Took your quiz, failed your quiz! Now, I know how I forgot that today was Valentine's Day! I wondered what that heart shape box of candy was that I found sitting by the coffee pot this morning meant! To tell the truth, which is hard for me to do since I do not like to show my sensitive side. I took my wife out to dinner last night and then to a Birthday Party for a 40 year old girl that we have known since childhood. I figured if I took her out to dinner it would also count for our 44th anniversary in four days!

If you feel the incessant urge,
and your tongue is sharp and quick,
leave a worthless thought for me
whether cool, or fun, or sick.
