Valentine's Day is one of the most celebrated days of love in history. Does anyone really know the true "history" behind it? In church every year our pastor tells of the story of St. Valentine, who defied Claudius II law that all men remain single so that they would be better soldiers, and continued to conduct marital services in private. Later Valentine was sentenced to death. In our homeschool we've looked up many resources for the history of Valentine's Day, here are some that we've found informative and productive;
Kaboose which also offers some pretty cool crafts for V-Day.
apples4theteacher also offers crafts as well as interactive computer games.
Holiday Cook complete with Valentine menu suggestions .
Everything Valentine's Day that also gives Valentine customs from around the world.
So off we go to celebrate and exchange Valentine's with our friends! Happy Valentine's day!
