The Hallmark Holiday

by Great Scot

On the way to work this morning, I heard on the radio that the observance of St. Valentine's Day was derived from English/French traditions. The custom of St. Valentine's Day began following the observance that birds began pairing up in mid-February. I guess you could say that, quite literally, love was in the air! Well this historical observation lead the other commentator on the radio to remark that, "Well this goes to show that St. Valentine's day is for the birds."

Happy Valentine's Day and much love to all the inhabitants of The Beehive.

Heyyy there, Mister Big Bird. If you can get over your issues with "fake Hallmark holidays that were contrived merely for profit margins" for just a cottonpickin' minute or three, you know which tree to find me in.
