Complete Valentine's Day Checklist

Valentine’s Day is right around the corner. Some people hate it, some people love it… Homeschoolers see an educational opportunity and school holiday party rolled into one. =)

Now, I know that none of you have waited until the very last minute to decide whether or not you were going to do anything and to plan what you’re going to do – you probably have the entire week lesson-planned down to paper heart crafts and love-themed Haikus. If, hypothetically speaking, some of you might need a little bit of direction, you’re in luck. You just happen to be reading a complete holiday checklist to help you pull off your last minute learning opportunity. Enjoy!

The Complete Valentine’s Day Checklist

Valentine-Epilepsy

History

When it comes to Saint Valentine and Valentine’s Day, it’s hard to tell what is history and what is legend. We do know that there was a man named Valentine who was martyred for his faith on February 14, 269 AD. (Actually, there may have been a second man named Valentine who was martyred for his faith on a different date, as well.) We also know that church gave him the title of “Saint” and honored him on February 14th. We also know that he died in Rome, during the Roman festival of Lupercalius (the festival of fertility and love.) Later in history, the Catholic Church attempted to abolish the old Roman festival traditions by placing emphasis on Saint Valentine’s Day instead. Over time many of the old Roman symbols and traditions blended with the Catholic holiday to create what we know as Valentine’s Day today (and commercialism did the rest!)

Here are some links to help you in your own research:
