Short History of Valentine's Day

Valentine's Day has been celebrated for many centuries. Even though
Valentine's Day falls on February 14, the feast day of a certain Christian
martyr named Valentine (third century A.D.), its customs probably began
with the Roman Feast of Lupercalia, which was celebrated on February 15.
On the eve of Saint Valentine's Day, young people would gather, and each
young man would draw by lot a young lady's name. The couples were then
"valentines" for the year and would exchange tokens of love.

 Godiva Choclatier
Billy Bear's Valentine's Day


My friend,
my companion,
through good times and bad.
My friend,
my buddy,
through happy and sad.
Beside me you stand,
beside me you walk.
You're there to listen,
you're there to talk.
With happiness,
with smiles,
with pain and with tears,
I know you'll be there,
throughout the years!
