Today in Global Small Business: The Origins of Valentine's Day

©2022 Laurel J. Delaney.  All rights reserved.
What's affecting me, my clients, my colleagues and other global small business owners:

  • History of Valentine's Day.
  • While Valentine's Day might be associated with romantic love, the real story behind its namesake, St. Valentine, is full of bloodshed and heartbreak.
  • The dark origins of Valentine's Day.
  • Quote of the week: "To love at all is to be vulnerable." – C.S. Lewis
  • Valentine's Day exploded in U.S. popular culture beginning in the 1840s, although it was confined to a very specific idea of romantic love.
  • The history and meaning of Valentine's Day – the why behind why we celebrate the day.
