It's Valentine's Day

It came to my surprice when many guys wished me "happy valentine's". It's not only one, but it's 3. oh, gosh.. Is this teasing me or trying to pity me? Never mind, i am fine with it because i am still a vegetarian. Hee..

When it comes to the word "Valentine", what i remember is the name of a great saint, St. Valentine. I get to know this great person because my mum gave me a story book which has all the stories of the great saints on earth. He was a great saint of "love", he was a Roman priest and was caught marrying Christian couples and aiding any Christians who were being persecuted under Emperor Claudius in Rome. These were considered as a crime in ancient days, so he was beheaded in the later years. Many years after that, as to recognise his contribution in the Catholic faith, he was decleared as a saint. 14th of February is the day in which he was executed and a day celebrate his martyrdom.

Now, in commemorating with this day, many people use this day to express their love to their love ones. Buying flowers, having romantic candle-light dinner, watching movie together, etc.. Some even take this opportunity to get married on this meaningful day as they believe that they will be bonded by the love of the cupid forever. Anyway, different person will have different kind of opinion, most importantly everyone is happy.

So i hereby wish all couples Happy Valentine's and have fun.. Cheers^^
