On Valentine's Day

Yesterday was a fun day of exchanging sweet sentiments. I got these flowers and chocolates...

Did you know:

“The roots of St. Valentine’s Day lie in the ancient Roman festival of Lupercalia, which was celebrated on Feb. 15. For 800 years the Romans had dedicated this day to the god Lupercus. On Lupercalia, a young man would draw the name of a young woman in a lottery and would then keep the woman as a sexual companion for the year.
