The Legend of St. Valentine and Valentine's Day - CeciliaRosalie Resident Reporting...


Saint Valentine




Every February 14, across the United States and in other places around the world, although it remains a working day in most of them. Candy, flowers and gifts are exchanged between loved ones, all in the name of St. Valentine. But who is this mysterious saint, and where did these traditions come from?

The Legend

The history of Valentine's Day--and the story of its patron saint--is shrouded in mystery. February has long been celebrated as a month of romance and St. Valentine's Day, as we know it today, contains vestiges of both Christian and ancient Roman tradition.

The Catholic Church recognizes at least three different saints named Valentine or Valentinus, all of whom were martyred. One legend contends that Valentine was a priest who served during the third century in Rome. When Emperor Claudius II decided that single men made better soldiers than those with wives and families, he outlawed marriage for young men. Valentine, realizing the injustice of the decree, defied Claudius and continued to perform marriages for young lovers in secret. When Valentine's actions were discovered, Claudius ordered that he be put to death.

Singer/Actress Whitney Houston Dies at 48


Whitney Elizabeth Houston (August 9, 1963 – February 11, 2012)

Today, the music world lost a powerful voice. Whitney Houston was best known for her award winning vocal range and songs like " I want to dance with Somebody", "Didn't we almost have it all" and "I will always love you".  Ms. Houston was found in her Beverly Hills Hilton hotel room by her bodygaurd.  Attempts to resusitate the star were unsucessful.

Whitney's life in recent years has been in and out of news headlines due to her struggles with addiction, and her volatile 14 year marriage. From reports it seemed this superstar was making a coming back and was expected to attend the Grammy's pre show Gala.
She is survived by daughter, 19 year old  Bobbi Kristina Brown, her only child with former New Edition member Bobby Brown. It was also reported Ray J was dating the singer at the time of her passing.  At this time, cause of death has not yet been reported.
