Valentine, a curious story of neighborly love
Legend has it that Valentine of Terni was a third-century physician D.C. He became a priest, who decided to help couples who were forbidden to marry.
It turns out that the young soldiers of the Emperor Claudius II could not form a family, because he had to devote himself, body and soul to the army. To Valentine of Terni this seemed very unfair and pitied them, so he started to celebrate marriages between soldiers and their loved ones in hiding.
Word soon spread and the priest was arrested, as was seen coming for subversive and facilitator of forbidden unions, with the aggravating circumstance of being official propagator of the Christian faith. Once in prison, he fell in love with the jailors blind daughter, to which he gave sight by the grace of Christ. This was too much for the emperor, who beheaded the priest, but not before giving it an unspeakable martyrdom, and Valentine of Terni suffered a terrible death in the name of love. A total melodrama.
On 14 February a couple of centuries later, Pope Gelasius I established this day as Valentine's Day, in memory of that priest executed the same day of the year 270 AD, and Valentine became Valentine, patron saint of lovers.
Now we are in the Western world, celebrating the best possible way this romantic day to honor the misfortune of this man who gave everything for love. We will not ask you to go through a similar Valentine Terni, quite the contrary, martyrdom did his part and what is left is for us to enjoy what he defended, the least we can do is show that special person our sincere love.
Sometimes it's hard to express our feelings and we decide to ignore the day of love with the excuse that this day is sometimes somewhat maligned for its consumer character, but deep down we love to celebrate, to give and to get.
Haven’t you decided what to give yet? It's normal, you think you already have everything, because we’ve just had Christmas, Kings and the Sales. Let's review things: clothing, accessories for the office ... what's missing? What we lack is: peace, relaxation and fun, something you can never have enough of. So we suggest rest and give unforgettable experiences and romantic dinners, climate, beach and evening strolls.
