I just can't get enough of Peter's brilliant
colors. I can tell by his brush strokes how
free he felt when he painted.
He did many paintings of hearts so I tried
to combine his concept with mine and tried
to see how many hearts I could get into
one composition...wala...my idea was
born to make Peter my Valentine!
Can you count how
hearts many there are?
Saint Valentine's Day, often simply Valentine's Day, is observed on February 14 each year. Today Valentine's Day is celebrated in many countries around the world, mostly in the West, although it remains a working day in all of them.
The original "St. Valentine" was just a lithurgical celebration of one or more early Christian saint named Valentinus. All the modern romantic connotations were added several centuries later by poets. Several martyrdom stories were invented for the various Valentines that belonged to 14th February, and added to later martyologies. This celebration was deleted from the General Roman Calendar of saints in 1969 by Pope Paul VI.
The day first became associated with romantic love in the circle of Geoffrey Chaucein the High Middle Ages, when the tradition of Courtly love flourished. By the 15th century, it had evolved into an occasion in which lover dexpressed their love for each other by presenting flowers, offering confectionery, and sending greeting cards (known as "valentines").
