Happy Beekeeping and Epilepsy Day!

So it’s Valentine’s Day, eh? Well I did a little digging about what we’re all being told to celebrate and thanks to history.com I’ve learned a couple interesting facts.

For example Saint Valentine is very likely two different men. There are conflicting histories about him and it cannot be determined either way.

Also (my favourite) Saint Valentine had other duties in his afterlife other than watching over loving couples. He was tasked with aiding beekeepers, along with plague, fainting, and epileptic sufferers.

Busy guy.

Happy Valentine’s Day to the bees and the ailing!
