Five events this week: Happy Valentine’s Day


Valentine’s Day is an ever evolving celebration of European origin with Christian martyrdom as its roots. A St. Valentine – the name Valentine was ascribed to Christian martyrs – was known as a do-gooder coming from various Christian faiths, so it appears – while an actual St. Valentine is known to have existed, or maybe a few of them – the lore and legends about the Valentines led to today what is known as a day to celebrate love.
