Should we celebrate or mourn Valentine day?

I am a very lucky man, I now have spent 10 years with my beautiful wife and i am not affected by the hole commercial side of Valentin day.

First of all what is Valentine day & why do we celebrate this day ? let look at the story :

The Story of St. Valentine:
The Roman Emperor Claudius II was fighting
many wars. He wanted a
strong army, but many men did not want
to be soldiers. Claudius thought
the men wanted to stay home to be
with their wives and children instead
of leaving to fight wars.
Claudius thought of an awful solution
to his problem. He decided to cancel
all marriages! No one in all of Rome could get married. Claudius thought
that if the men couldn’t get marrie
d, the men would ignore the women
and want to be soldiers.
Valentine, who was a priest, believed
that people needed to get married.
He thought that if they were not marr
ied, they would be tempted to sin by
living together without being married.
So he secretly and illegally married
couples anyway! He performed the weddings in secret places, so the
Roman soldiers would not find out.
But they did find out. Valentine wa
s arrested and brought before the
Emperor. The Emperor thought Val
entine was a well spoken and wise
young man, and encouraged him to st
op being a Christian and become a
loyal Roman. Valentine would not deny
his beliefs, and he refused. He was
sent to prison until he could be ex
ecuted. While he was in prison, he sent
out letters to his friends and asked to be prayed for by writing
Remember
your Valentine
.
Valentine was killed on the 14th or the
24th of February in the year 269 or
270. We celebrate Valentine’s Day on February 14
th
in honor of St.
Valentine.

So should we celebrate Valentine days or morn it? Morn the lost of a man who devoted his life to love and should we not dedicate every other  day to his life by loving our significant other on a daily base…

Stop using today as a redemption day for fixing your relationship by buying expensive material thing or go on a vacation or what ever and use today to care for each other like you would every other day of the years.

Today a man died for love, so we could give love not buy love

Namaste

I AM COMPASSION
I AM PEACE
I AM ABUNDANCE
