Happy Valentine’s Day

8 Feb

Did we make a big deal out of this day at SEHS?

I have trouble remembering many of the details of our life at the Castle, but it seems to me that everyone celebrates some of these holidays now much more than back then. I have memories of valentine card exchanges in the grade school years but not at Southeast. Is it possible that today the celebration of Valentine’s Day has taken on increased significance?

Read the blurb at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Valentine’s_Day
See what you think. If you can remember, leave a comment about a special valentine gift. May all our class-mates enjoy Valentine’s Day this year with those you love!

    Actually the reading @wikipedia turns out to be more than just “a blurb” and gives a great over-view of this holiday. I don’t think we had any idea at that age just how much of our American culture had deep roots in Western civilization, did we?
    Even the poet, John Donne, one of my favorites, had a poem for the occasion before he in turn was martyred on Valentine’s Day.
