It's Valentine's Day!

It's a Saturday. I shouldn't be having school, but yet I have. Because of the stupid replacement for Chinese New Year! Grr...

Anyway, it's Valentine's Day! It's the day where love is in the air... Candy, chocolates, flowers, etc... are exchanged on this day, all because of St. Valentine. What did he do, to be remembered, every year?

It is believed, that St. Valentine was a priest. He served in Rome, when Emperor Claudius II was in power. The emperor had decided that single men made better soldiers than those with wives or families. He implemented a new rule, where young and single men could not marry. St. Valentine, felt it was injustice to those young men. He continued to perform marriages, in secret. But he was discovered and put to death.

If it was me, I too would feel it was unfair. We are all humans. God created us. He created this thing called "love". It is our born right to love someone. I believe the Emperor at that time, too was once a young and single man, and he would have gotten married. And, in my opinion, married men make better soldiers, because they still want to keep themselves alive, to reunite with their families, or wives. Don't you think so?

Anyway, Happy Valentine's Day to all you lovers out there! =)
