Valentine’s Day – What They Didn’t Tell You

ID : 83228   
« back to classes page
Ah, Valentine’s Day! Cards, flowers, candy – perhaps a bit of jewelry – to celebrate your love, but what really lies behind this day? If we look back in history, the heart was not the center of soulful emotion. It was the liver. Imagine giving a liver to your true love. Or, as in ancient Rome, being slapped with a strip of goat skin by a naked youth running through the streets? And what of St. Valentine? The one who was beaten, decapitated and martyred. Why does he symbolize love? Join as we celebrate a day that is more – and less – than it seems. Chocolate will be served because as Charlie Brown says, “All you need is love. But a little chocolate now and then doesn't hurt."
