Valentine’s Day 2023

Valentine's Day

Today is February 14, 2023.

February 14 is known as Valentine’s Day in most of the world.

While we have nearly exhausted (for the time being) our cache of information on MODERN LOVE, we thought a nice, informative piece on VALENTINE’S DAY might be in order.

So here it is!


VALENTINE’S DAY is the day when the USA celebrates LOVE–or what we’re taught is LOVE.

Valentine’s Day, also called Saint Valentine’s Day or the Feast of Saint Valentine, is celebrated annually on February 14.  It originated as a Christian feast day honoring one or two early Christian martyrs named Saint Valentine and, through later folk traditions, has become a significant cultural, religious, and commercial celebration of romance and love in many regions of the world.

So how did the world move from Saint Valentine–a man supposedly who died for the testimony of Jesus Christ–to a holiday about love and romance?

The day became associated with romantic love in the 14th and 15th centuries when notions of courtly love flourished, apparently by association with the “lovebirds” of early spring. In 18th-century England, it grew into an occasion in which couples expressed their love for each other by presenting flowers, offering confectionery, and sending greeting cards (known as “valentines”). Valentine’s Day symbols that are used today include the heart-shaped outline, doves, and the figure of the winged Cupid.

Here’s a quick Valentine Day’s tidbit: Where did the ‘heart’ (or ‘heart-shaped outline) come from?  It looks NOTHING like a human heart, so where did this almost-universal symbol of love originate?

A professor of psychology who studied the symbolism, origin and history of Valentine’s Day said the traditional double-lobed heart symbol on candy and cards is inspired by the shape of female buttocks as they appear from behind, according to Discovery News.

A number of writers picked up on this salacious symbol.

Though the world’s ‘authorities’ are not enthused about the revelation, it is something to think about the next time the reader is tempted to give a ‘heart’-shaped box of candy to a sweetie.

At one time, it was claimed that Valentine’s Day was the second-biggest gift-giving day of the year (after Christmas).

Is that true?

The answer is hard to pin down–though there are a LOT of gifts given to sweethearts (real and imagined) on the day.

Like most other things which, once-upon-a-time began from religious beginnings, Valentine’s Day has morphed into something that its acolytes CLAIM is symbolic of love and romance.

But is it?

The reader will have to make up his own mind on this one.

DOES the reader have any thoughts on Valentine’s Day which he has picked up over the years?

It is not YET too late–although time is surely running out: there is still a LITTLE time to change direction (repent), place your faith (hope) for the future entirely on Jesus Christ and enter the kingdom of heaven.

Time is Running Out: Today is the Day of Salvation


“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:

And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. ”
1 Corinthians 15:1-8

“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”
-–Romans 1:16
