I have been told that Valentines Day is a day to tell people how much you love them or like them. I have to disagree though. Our culture has distorted Valentines Day into a mushy love holiday where the real meaning is lost. Yes, Valentines Day is about love, but not a worldly love it's a pure marital love. St. Valentine was known for marrying soldiers to their girlfriends even though the king outlawed it. He gave couples the chance to experience true love by getting married. Valentines day has turned into such a mess of fake love and feelings and emotions where really, it was supposed to be a day celebrating love and a man's life who valued true love and marriage.
