These groggy feelings and mood swings could be attributed to some mild seasonal depression, and the reality is- it’s a totally normal thing experience during winter. The further you live from the equator, the more likely you are to have symptoms! Everyone is affected differently, but according to the Mayo Clinic, some symptoms may include: trouble sleeping, feeling sluggish, lack of concentration, changes in appetite or weight, or loss of interest in activities you once enjoyed.   What causes the “Winter Blues”? Now that we’ve identified what the “winter blues” are, what causes them? The weather patterns have a lot to do with it. Lack of sunshine means a lack of one of the natural sources of Vitamin D in your life. According to the Mayo Clinic, when you’re exposed to the sun, your body releases serotonin, which cause feelings of joy. When rainy days abound, you begin to long for time spent on the beach!

History of Valentine’s Day

History of Valentine’s Day

St. Valentine The day of love: Valentine’s Day. It’s named after St. Valentine, who is known to the Catholic Church as the saint of love, but who is he? There are multiple people with the last name Valentine from this time in history, but the one most mentioned is a priest from the 3rd century A.D. According to tradition through resources such as CBN, the History Channel, and NPR, the emperor of Rome, Claudius II, stated that he preferred his soldiers not to be married because it made them better on the battlefield. However, this Valentine continued to marry people against the emperor’s wishes. Valentine was eventually caught, imprisoned and tortured for disobeying the law.   Lupercalia Valentine’s Day is also associated with a crazy, pagan fertility holiday named Lupercalia. This holiday was celebrated by Roman in biblical times as well. According to the History Channel, mid February was the time of this celebration, but it was also later deemed appropriate by the Catholic Church to celebrate St. Valentine’s death in the same season. Mid February is also believed to be the beginning of bird’s mating season- love is in the air.   The Formation of a Holiday The holiday was not associated with love and romance, however, in the the 13th century. The first greeting cards for Valentine’s Day date back to the 15th century, but in the 17th century people in Great Britain began to celebrate it as an actual holiday. It was then lead to the United States.   Current Celebration The United States now celebrates Valentine’s Day as one of it’s biggest commercial holidays through...
