The History of Valentine’s Day

Today is Thursday, February 14, 2019. The day of love all over the world. Most people have been running and will be running many errands today to make sure their beloved is greeted with warm feelings, desires, and sensations of love. On this special day we celebrate the art of love. Today, Valentine’s day is the only day dedicated to the heartbeat of love. 

Valentine’s day has its beginnings due to the Roman festival of Lupercalia. Lupercalia was an ancient festival held yearly on February 15. It was conducted under the eye of a priest called Luperci. This festival of love celebrated the season of Spring. This was especially important for fertility rites, where men and women were gathered, and paired by a system of lottery. Fortunately for us, the festival of Lupercalia was changed to St. Valentine’s Day. This was the day of romance that we observe and celebrate, since the 14th century. 

Happy Valentine’s Day Lovers♥

Technology issues, Yale Summer 2017, and change.

I am proud to say the school year is finally over. I have been taking a break. Posting more on my Instagram and twitter than here. I was having difficulties with the app. Or, the app was having difficulties and I could not post from it. I love the idea of being more mobile and not having to sit at my MAC and type.

However, I am now back and up and going. I want to say. I am excited that I have been selected to attend an Educator Seminar at Yale University this summer. I am excited. I will post pictures, of course!!! This is an experience of a lifetime as we will explore the writings, thoughts and ideas of Frederick Douglass. The name of the organization is The Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History. A few years ago I was selected again to attend a seminar at Tulane University. ♥ Happy Sailing and don’t forget to follow me on social media @4373fashionlane

Johnny Depp has a fashion goldmine of a home and he’s putting it up for sale…it can be yours for 12.7 million.

Inside Johnny Depp’s LA apartment covers an artist’s dream palace. It is no on the real estate market for 12.7 million dollars. After the unfortunate divorce from his recent wife, we can understand if Mr. Depp wishes to move on. Hey! He can afford it. The talking point of the home could very well be the mural by Brazilian Artists: OSGEMEOS. The home is located in the old downtown area of Los Angeles. The building was designed by Claude Beelman.
