Did you know Valentine was a real saint?

Grid Heart Quilt, Lori Kennedy


Here are some (mostly) fun facts about St. Valentine.

St. Valentine is the patron saint of engaged couples, happy marriages, beekeepers and epilepsy.

St. Valentine was martyred on February 14, 269 by Emperor Claudius II for refusing to renounce his faith.

Valentine is said to have left a note for his jail keeper’s daughter and signed it “From Your Valentine”.

Wishing you all love and happiness this St. Valentine’s Day!

From YOUR Valentine,
