Happy Valentine’s Day! In order to balance the “love and romance” theme of Valentine’s Day so commonly promoted in our culture, I used to show my Sunday school class a video about St. Valentine. But of course the truth about the holiday is actually much more complex. At any rate, hope you enjoy the day with someone you love.
Hope you’re spending today with the ones you love! You’ll find one of our family’s Valentine’s Day traditions (along with my recipe for a Giant Heart Cookie…well, actually two) right here.
BTW, another tradition we started a few years ago is our annual viewing of “Some Like It Hot,” a very funny movie which includes Chicago’s infamous St. Valentine’s Day Massacre in its plot. No, I wouldn’t recommend it for kids, but older teens and adults will find it amusing.
