As the world celebrates Valentine, it’s worthy to note some facts about this celebration.

In an article published on the internet by a fellow, I discovered some hidden facts about this celebration, hear this:

The first Valentine was posted around 1806. Almost one billion Valentine’s Day cards are sent each year on or near February 14 with females purchasing 85% of the cards. This is second only to the number of Christmas cards sent. The history is somewhat murky as to how Valentine’s Day has come to be what we now know and celebrate. Saint Valentine served in third-century Rome. Emperor Claudius decided that single men made better soldiers. Therefore, Claudius banned soldiers from being married. One version of the story is that Valentine continued to perform the weddings of young soldiers who were in love, and Claudius had Valentine imprisoned. While imprisoned, Valentine reportedly fell in love with the jailer’s daughter. Valentine sent her a card and signed it, “Love, your Valentine.” Another version is that Valentine defied Claudius by helping Christians escape the torture of the Romans.

Valentine died in approximately A.D. 270. Others claim the church may have decided to celebrate in mid February to “Christianize” the pagan Roman celebration Lupercalia. The first Valentine sent in the United States was in the 1840’s by Esther Howgald. Most of us enjoy “spoiling” a loved one on Valentine’s Day. Sending gifts and cards conveys love, affection, and friendship.

There is no biblical reason why Christians should not celebrate Valentine’s Day by giving their loved ones flowers, candy and/or cards. As with celebrating any holiday, the decision should be between the individual and God. Some people feel very strongly that observing any secular holiday is wrong, while others see it as harmless. The important thing to remember is that celebrating or not celebrating holidays should not be a cause for pride or division among Christians.

Thus, this celebration is not evil but the negative attitudes of most of the people that celebrate is what should be discouraged. For instance, many see it as a day where friends engage in illicit sex as a mark of love celebration. Some others condemn their suitors and husbands because they gave gifts that are seemingly worthless and cheap. Yet, some others go into emotional connectivity with the wrong people in the name of starting up a new relationship. Little wonder why some have started posting, “WHO WILL BE MY VAL?”
Here these: What you acquired by vanity diminishes. But, what you gather by labour increases. The love that you seek is within you. Love is not outside you but within you.
Continues shortly….

As you celebrate this love season, make it  a point of duty to share love with someone!
