Ten random things: February 14

Ten other saints whose feast days are celebrated on February 14:

  1. Sts. Cyril and Methodius
  2. St. Maro
  3. St. Abraham of Carrhae
  4. St. Antoninus of Sorrento
  5. St. Auxentius
  6. St. Theodosius
  7. St. Conran
  8. St. Dionysius
  9. St. Eleuchadius
  10. St. Nostrianus

As for St. Valentine, he was beaten with clubs and beheaded on this date circa A.D. 270. In addition to being the patron saint of love and lovers, he's also the patron of affianced couples, bee keepers, engaged couples, epilepsy, fainting, greetings, happy marriages, plague, travellers, and young people. Interesting combination.
