Thanks for the Holiday…Sorry You Lost Your Head

Happy Valentine’s Day Y’all!!

Valentine’s Day is about love.  Unless of course you are one of the Martyred Valentines that the holiday is named after.  Then it just sucks being you.  But thanks for the holiday dude…sorry you lost your head.  Thanks for taking one for the team though.

Saint V looks so much better with his head on.

“whereupon this priest was condemned to death. He was beaten with clubs and stoned; when that failed to kill him, he was beheaded outside the Flaminian Gate.” ~ Wikipedia

According to Wikipedia (you know cause they know shit over there) Valentine’s Day is in honor of several people with the same name given by the Church.    What that means is these guys died heinous because they were loyal to God.  Go them.

That's painful love

So we’ve come a long way in celebrating the deaths of these martyrs to making it a happy day of love and romance. Yeah for us.  I think I like the premise behind St. Patrick’s day and what it evolved into.  Italian dude is one heck of an exterminator…we now celebrate by getting drunk.  The evolution there makes more sense to me.
Tonight I will celebrate this oddity of a holiday with my Love.  I love her so much every day is like Valentine’s day so we do not really need just one day.  Our days are way better…no carnage 😉   So Happy Valentine’s Day to everyone out there.  Be safe and be loved!
