Happy Valentine's Day!
I can always count on my friend and fellow blogger Teresa O'Connor of Seasonal Wisdom for a her wonderful holiday folklore.
It turns out, according to Teresa, that Valentine's Day IS about the birds and the bees.
Ok, maybe not the bees.
But Teresa writes that poets believed that birds chose their mates on Feb. 14, the feast day of their patron saint.
Read more on the history of Valentine's Day traditions from Teresa. And I hope the one you love remembers you on this day.
