I'm sitting at the reference desk this Valentine's day with little action because we're at the start of our Winter Break. I was just musing about the low number of days which we still recognize in honor of a Christian Saint, no matter how far they've gone astray.
I also don't think there is a popular biography of Saint Valentines--any of the three--in the way that Saint Patrick whose biography is in a children's book form. I take that back. Here is one. Given that three Valentines could have been the original Saint, we'll never know on this side of Heaven. Too bad 24 hour news wasn't available at those times.
