Was There a real St. Valentine?
Yes there was! Three hundred years after the death of Jesus, the Roman emperors still demanded that everyone believe in the Roman gods. Valentine, a Christian priest, had been thrown in prison for his teachings. On February 14, Valentine was beheaded, not only because he was a Christian, but also because he had performed a miracle. He supposedly cured the jailer’s daughter of her blindness. The night before he was executed, he wrote the jailer’s daughter a farewell letter, signing it “From Your Valentine.” Another legend tells us that this same Valentine, well-loved by all, received notes to his jail cell from children and friends who missed him.
Another Valentine was an Italian bishop who lived at about the same time, AD 200. He was imprisoned because he secretly married couples, contrary to the laws of the Roman emperor. Some legends say he was burned at the stake

Now Let’s Celebrate!
Valentine’s Day is approaching fast. This year it falls on a Thursday. Many celebrate by giving cards, letters, flowers or presents to their spouse or partner. They may also arrange a romantic meal in a restaurant or night in a hotel. It’s also a very popular night to arrange transportation with a limo service – to make it that much more special.
There are many types of limousines to choose from. A few popular Valentine’s limos are the Lincoln Town Car stretch limo, the Chrysler 300 stretch limo, the Hummer H4 super stretch limo, or the Cadillac Escalade super stretch SUV limo.
