Happy St. Valentine's Day, guys! ❤️ It's been one of my most favorite holidays ever since I was at school. And what about you, do you commemorate this day ? 😻 ------------------------------------ С Днём Св. Валентина ! Один из моих сааааааамых любимых праздников ❤️. Никак не могу понять людей, который считают этот день сугубо маркетинговой уловкой. Все праздники - это воронка для продаж, это я вам как маркетолог заявляю 😂. Но если есть День Города, Женский День, День Защитника Отечества и т.д, то почему бы не отпраздновать хоть раз в году такое светлое чувство как Любовь ? ❤️ В общем, 🥂🍾💐желаю всем Любви - к себе, к вашим половинкам , к окружающим и к жизни , в конце концов. Празднуете этот день или не считаете праздником ?

Happy Feast Day
Feast day: February 14
Patronage: #love, youth, happy marriages
Saint Valentine of Rome was a bishop and martyr of the early church. Not much is known about him, except that his relics were found in the catacombs and an ancient church was dedicated to him. Tradition has it that Valentine cured the blind daughter of a Roman judge who along with his household, was later baptized. St. Valentine married couples, going against the edict of Cladius II. It was said that on the day of his execution, he gave a note to his jailer’s daughter that he cured, that was signed “your Valentine”. He’s pictured with birds because birds start pairing in February around his feast day.
#StValentine was a 3rd-century bishop and martyr. Tradition has it that, while imprisoned, Valentine secretly married couples so husbands would not have to fight in the war. Since the Middle-Ages, he has been associated with courtly love. (Feast Day: Feb. 14)
