Happy Valentine’s Day from the BERKMAN team! Here are some interesting tid bits about today brought to you by The History Channel:

  • 141 million Valentine’s Day cards are exchanged annually, making Valentine’s Day the second-most popular greeting-card-giving occasion.
  • The history of Valentine’s Day — and its patron saint — is shrouded in mystery. But we do know that February has long been a month of romance. St. Valentine’s Day, as we know it today, contains vestiges of both Christian and ancient Roman tradition. So, who was Saint Valentine and how did he become associated with this ancient rite? Today, the Catholic Church recognizes at least three different saints named Valentine or Valentinus, all of whom were martyred.

And a quote:

The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched. They must be felt with the heart.

– Helen Keller

We’re happily enjoying all our baked goods that we brought into the office.

Once again, happy Valentine’s day!
