(Saint) Valentine’s Day is a held on February 14.  It celebrates love, caring and affection.  The holiday is named after an early Christian martyr named Valentine and was established by Pope Gelasius in AD 496. That’s a lot of greeting cards, chocolate and flowers over the years, no?

For those that take this holiday seriously and are not in love or have been recently dumped here is an entry from NPR that covers ‘those who have been crushed by some two-timing, cold-hearted, no-good jerk.’ Click here for a list of ‘breakup songs in two basic varieties. First is the classic lonesome lover’s lament, the kind honed by blues singers and crooners such as Patsy Cline. Then there’s the other kind of breakup song: the angry one, as typified by Alanis Morissette‘s “You Oughta Know.” Either way, for all of you out there living a life of quiet, lovelorn desperation, you have musical company. Take heart in the abundant supply of tearily tender and defiantly furious songs that wait to get you through the hard times and soothe your aching soul’.

– Enjoy some of my favorite pairs and couples in this photo montage. The top two critters are of course, my dog, Benny and cat, Madison.
