14/02/2024 Valentines Day

What does Valentines Day mean to you?

originally in honour of an early Christian Martyr named Saint Valentine and later, through folk traditions, Valentine's Day has become a significant cultural, religious and a celebration of romance and love in many regions of the world.

Who could forget receiving their first 'Valentine's Day' card or sending one in secret?

It is a tradition which has not passed by many of us, as we have all been caught up with the commercialism of Valentine's Day at some point .

However at the heart of all of the Valentine's Day celebrations it really comes down to the fact its a day when you can tell the ones you love how you feel, the love that is in your heart and how much they mean to you. 

So embrace Valentine's Day knowing you made someone feel very special, but remember, every day should be Valentine's Day towards the ones you love.

23/02/2024    You can be whomever you want to be . . . . . .

There are no words needed - this image says it all
