Weekly Photo Challenge: Time of the Season

For some color.  And it couldn’t get more vibrant than red!

HeartandRose

Red for roses on Valentines Day.  And for the hearts!  It’s a very red day anyway.

There was also the National Wear Red Day that was celebrated or honored on Friday, February 5th this year.  When I was in Federal Service, we all wore red every Friday to support our troops.  We all should start doing this until every last soldier comes home!

The color red is the color of the blood shed on the actual day Saint Valentine was tortured and beheaded by an angry anti-Christ emperor named Claudius Gothicus that not only did not embrace Christianity himself, even though claiming to like Saint Valentine, demanded that he denounce Christ himself or be put to death.  He refused and Valentines Day is somehow an outcome of his martyrdom in the year of our Lord 269.  Strangely enough that emperor died of the plague, the following year.

On that same day, 1660 years later in Chicago another blood bath occurred known as the Saint Valentines Day Massacre.  Don’t some people just suck?!

Try not to think about it when you’re trading Valentine Day cards and giving your loved ones chocolates and flowers.  You are celebrating by doing the opposite of what this day had represented and isn’t that really what Saint Valentine would have wanted?  To continue the Christian tradition of loving one another.

God bless!
