Saint Valentine’s Legacy and Holiday
Brother Knights,
Happy Valentine’s Day to you all!
Spend the day with your someone special!
Saint Valentine was executed on February 14, around the year 269 AD. Over time, this date became associated with celebrating love and affection, leading to the modern Valentine’s Day holiday. However, it’s essential to note that the historical details surrounding Saint Valentine are not well-documented, and many aspects of the story have been embellished and romanticized over the centuries.
Valentine’s Day has evolved into a day for expressing love and affection to one’s romantic partner, friends, and family by exchanging cards, gifts, and gestures of kindness. While the holiday’s origins are rooted in Christian tradition and martyrdom, it has become a secular celebration of love and friendship in many parts of the world.
