Valentine’s Day, also called Saint Valentine’s day, February 14th is a day for celebrating love in many parts of the world. Originating as a Western Christian Feast day, although it is not a public holiday in any country, it is widely celebrated linked with romance and love.
Many stories of martyrdom are associated with ‘Valentine’s’ through time, one being a Saint Valentine of Rome, who was imprisoned for marrying Roman Soldiers forbidden to marry, and according to legend, during his imprisonment he restored the sight of the daughter of his judge. Before his execution, he wrote a letter to the daughter and signed it ‘Your Valentine’.
The day became associated with romantic love in the times of Chaucer, when lovers expressed their feelings for each other with tokens-flowers, confectionary and greeting cards (known as Valentine’s).
We see it today with hearts, flowers, swans and doves, cupids and cherubs amongst others.

Are you suffering from January blues? Apparently, January is the busiest month for divorce applications, with people getting to their ‘last straw’ over the Christmas period and of course, inevitably, people have overspent and it’s a long time until January pay day at the end of the month as many companies do pay December salary a little earlier, which is great for Christmas but just adds to the pain in January.
Walking in Winter in Pembrokeshire is as good as pleasure as in the summertime-the coast takes on a moody veil and the weather is sure to make you feel alive. So, as long as you are well prepared, there’s no need to leave walking until the sun comes out!
Walking in Winter Checklist
Personally I do not advocate walking when the weather is bad-howling rain and gales, but I think there’s nothing nicer than a fresh winter morning for a walk across the Pembrokeshire Coast Path, which, just so happens to be on our doorstep. And, as it is winter, you do need to take a few extra precautions, just incase the weather does change quickly.
