Who Was the Real St. Valentine?

Who Was the Real St. Valentine?

While doing research on the origins of Valentine's Day, you're likely to run across a LOT of theories about which St. Valentine is the real St. Valentine. With roots in both Christianity and Roman history, Valentine's Day can be a complex holiday to unpack! We want to bring you just one of those theories today as a trivia tidbit to impress your V-date this weekend:)

At one point in the 3rd century, Roman Emperor Claudius II disallowed men from marrying because he believed men with wives and families didn't make the best soldiers. St. Valentine continued to perform marriage ceremonies under the radar and was subsequently put to death for his treason. He represents just one of the martyrs named by the Catholic church who could have inspired the holiday we associate with romance.

Want to show someone with a sweet tooth that you care? Don't forget to order your Sweetheart Raspberry Lemon Cake for Valentine's Day while it's still available.

Become a Vendor at Fangboner Farms!

If there’s one thing that staying home more during COVID-19 has taught us, it’s that we often have much more than we need. Why not take all that extra stuff (clothes, home decor, etc.) you’ve been hoarding in your closet and sell it to make an extra buck?


From now until September 27th, Fangboner Farms is giving community members like you the opportunity to do just that with our Attic Sales! Basically, you can sell the gently used items you’ve been holding onto for years, or you could showcase your crafting prowess. From quilt makers and needlepoint mavens to bakers and soap makers, Fangboner Farms welcomes all vendors.


We think it’s a good time to open our doors to local makers (and to regular folks who could use a little extra pocket money in an unpredictable economy). You can learn the up-to-the-minute details on this event on our Facebook page. Contact us if you’d like to reserve a spot: email Elizabeth@fangboner.com or call 567-703-6191.
