St Valentine

Red Roses  chocolates and lots of love is all I require for  Valentines day this Year.
St valentine did  not have such a good day  on 14th Feb 273 AD , he was beheaded for performing Christian marriages in secret, his flower adorned skull is display in the Basilica of Santa Maria in Rome.
St valentine  is the patron saint of beekeepers and epilepsy marriage and of course Love.
The first Valentine’s Day card was sent by Charles, Duke of Orleans, to his wife while he was imprisoned in the Tower of London. He remained a prisoner of war for the next twenty-four years
This  valentines day put on your best Red Lippy and raise a Glass to St Valentine.
