To each and every one of you out there, Happy Valentines Day!!!!
If you never received anything, then don’t worry about it, nor did I and I have a boyfriend.
Instead, here are some interesting facts about Valentines Day:
- The first recorded association of Valentine’s Day with romantic love is in Parlement of Foules (1382) by Geoffrey Chaucer
- Using the language of the law courts for the rituals of courtly love, a “High Court of Love” was established in Paris on Valentine’s Day in 1400. The court dealt with love contracts, betrayals, and violence against women. Judges were selected by women on the basis of a poetry reading
- The day has come to be associated with a generic platonic greeting of “Happy Valentine’s Day.” As a joke, Valentine’s Day is also referred to as “Singles Awareness Day
So there you go. I’ll be stuffing my face with chocolate for the rest of the day, feeling sorry for myself.
