Thanks a lot Chaucer
I'm anti-Valentine's day as a rule (Yeah, I know that makes me a bitter, unromantic cynic)but today I find it difficult to keep such a stance. Not only did I wake up to a Happy Valentine's Day msg on my phone but when I got into work I had a(very unexpected) card and lots of chocolate and candy from my co-workers, now if that doesn't make a grinch's heart grow a few times larger than I dont know what will.
Did you know that Chaucer is recognized as the first person to associate Feb 14th, St Valentine's feast day, with romantic love? Read all about such associations at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saint_Valentine
