I have to admit before writing this article I knew very little about Valentine’s Day history.
Of course, I’d seen it in the trailers for the movie “My Bloody Valentine”.
I always thought it was a trumped up commercial holiday invented by corporations to extract lots of money from guys and make lonely women feel inadequate.
It’s actually a holiday named for the patron Saint Valentine.
But who is this mysterious patron saint and what is the overall haze surrounding valentines day really all about?
