Transcript of Valentine's Day

Valentine's Day the Feast of Saint Valentine or simply: Saint Valentine's Day commonly known as Valentine's Day It is observed on each year.

Today Valentine's Day is celebrated in many countries around the world, mostly in the West, although it remains a working day in all of them. February 14 14.02 !
;) If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels,
but have not love,
I am a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal.
And if I have prophetic powers,
and understand all mysteries and all knowledge,
and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains,
but have not love,
I am nothing.
If I give away all I have,
and if I deliver my body to be burned,
but have not love,
I gain nothing.
Love is patient and kind;
love is not jealous or boastful;
it is not arrogant or rude.
Love does not insist on its own way;
it is not irritable or resentful;
it does not rejoice at wrong, but rejoices in the right.
Love bears all things,
believes all things,
hopes all things,
endures all things.
Love never ends;
as for prophecies, they will pass away;
as for tongues, they will cease;
as for knowledge, it will pass away.

For our knowledge is imperfect and our prophecy is imperfect;
but when the perfect comes, the imperfect will pass away.
When I was a child,
I spoke like a child,
I thought like a child,
I reasoned like a child;
when I became a man,
I gave up childish ways.
For now we see in a mirror dimly,
but then face to face.
Now I know in part; then I shall understand fully,
even as I have been fully understood.

So faith,
abide, these three;
but the greatest of these
is love.
Chapter Thirteen of St. Paul's First Letter to the Corinthians Hymn to Love If you know what we mean... Valentine's Day traditions in Britain are the fun part of all celebrations!

~On this day, the English people, especially the kids dole out their favorite romantic tracks or love ballads and are generously rewarded with candies, toys and truffles, in return. •Songs • It's a V-day tradition in Britain to write lyrics and sonnets as a tribute to the icon of love, Saint Valentine.

~On this day, all the wild-eyed lovers come together and scribble poetic lines to commemorate the occasion. • On V-day, the young girls wake up early in the morning, stand near the window, and keep an eye on the people passing by.

~There is a long-existing belief in Britain that the first man a girl sees on the morning of Valentine's Day is the man meant for her. •There is this legendary belief among the people of U.K. that on Valentine's Day, birds come together to find their mates.

Thanks to Geoffrey Chaucer, this belief has come to be an indispensable part of Valentine's Day legend today.
In certain parts of U.K., Valentine's Day is commemorated as ‘Birds Wedding Day'.
~ It is a custom to eat baked buns topped with caraway seeds, plums and raisins on this day. ~People's tradition is also an exchanging cozy moments, cute gifts and cards. There are 2 different legends ... Enjoy! and perhaps the best known, began in Rome, when the Emperor, Claudius II, was involved in many bloody and unpopular campaigns. Claudius the Cruel as he was called, was having a difficult time getting soldiers to join his military leagues. He believed that the reason was that Roman men did not want to leave their loves or families. So, he cancelled all marriages and engagements in Rome! The good Saint Valentine, who was a priest in Rome, in the year 269 A.D., together with his friend Saint Marius, defied Claudius and continued to perform marriages for young lovers in secret.
When Valentine's actions were discovered, he was sentenced to be beaten to death with clubs and to have his head cut off.
But while in prison, it is believed that Valentine fell in love with a young girl, who may have been his jailor's daughter, who visited him during his confinement. Before his death on the 14th day of February, it is alleged that he wrote her a letter, which he signed The first legend,
in ancient Rome, on February 14th, a holiday to honor Juno. Juno was the Queen of the Roman Gods and Goddesses. The Romans also knew her as the Goddess of women and marriage. Then, the following day, February 15th, began the Feast of Lupercalia.

In those days, the lives of young boys and girls were strictly separate. However, on the eve of the festival of Lupercalia, the names of Roman girls were written on slips of paper and placed into jars.

Each young man would draw a girl's name from the jar and would then be partners for the duration of the festival with the girl whom he chose. Sometimes the pairing of the children lasted an entire year, and often, they would fall in love and would later marry. Another legend says that Valentine's Day started ... Love ~It is a strong sexual and chemistry feeling between two people(mostly between man and woman), which can lead them to the marriage.

~This is also sth. that you can get from your family and friends, but in another form of love. People can express love in different ways: by words and actions.

Love is connected with good feelings, happiness, safety, adore, but sometimes aslo with bad ones such as jealousy ,envy, sadness.

Love can be symbolized by red color, hearts and Amors.

“Valentine’s Day” is a day to celebrate L VE! Saint Valentine (in Latin, Valentinus) a widely recognized third century Roman saint commemorated on February 14 and associated since the High Middle Ages with a tradition of courtly love.

Nothing is known reliably of St. Valentine except his name and the fact that he died on the Via Flaminia north of Rome on February 14. It is even uncertain whether St. Valentine is to be identified with only one saint or two saints of the same name. Several differing martyrologies have been added to later hagiographies that are unreliable. For these reasons this liturgical commemoration was not kept in the Catholic calendar of saints for universal liturgical veneration as revised in 1969. But the "Martyr Valentinus who died on the 14th of February on the Via Flaminia close to the Milvian bridge in Rome" still remains in the list of officially recognized saints for local veneration.
In the Eastern Orthodox Church, Saint Valentine the Presbyter is celebrated on July 6 and Hieromartyr Saint Valentine (Bishop of Interamna, Terni in Italy) is celebrated on July 30. Notwithstanding, because of the relative obscurity of this western saint in the East, members of the Greek Orthodox Church named Valentinos (male) or Valentina (female) may celebrate their name day on the Western ecclesiastical calendar date of February 14.
