This Week We Celebrate

What do you do on Saint Valentine’s Day?

This has become a great business on behalf of love. But how much do we know about the origins of this celebration?

    The exact person we honor on February 14, St. Valentine, is hidden in the obscurities of the first three centuries of Church history. The feast may be in honor of a priest, Valentine, who was known to counsel and marry young couples.  This was at the time when Roman law persecuted Christians, so Valentine eventually incurred the wrath of Emperor Claudius II and was imprisoned.  When Valentine turned his attention to converting the Emperor himself, Claudius had him put to death.

Song Listening

I always recommend my dear students to listen to songs in English so as to improve their learning.
This song I've always loved.  I learnt it  by heart when I was only 15! 
Today I wanted to share it with all of you.
I hope you like it too!

  My   Melancholy Blues  (Freddie Mercury)
Another party's over
And I'm left cold sober
My baby left me for somebody new
I don't wanna talk about it
Want to forget about it
Wanna be intoxicated with that special brew
So come and get me
Let me
Get in that sinking feeling
That says my heart is on an all time low - so
Don't expect me
To behave perfectly
And wear that sunny smile
My guess is I'm in for a cloudy and overcast
Don't try and stop me
'Cause I'm heading for that stormy weather soon
I'm causing a mild sensation
With this new occupation
I'm permanently glued
To this extraordinary mood, so now move over
And let me take over
With my melancholy blues
       ¯ ¯¯

I'm causing a mild sensation
With this new occupation
I'm in the news
I'm just getting used to my new exposure
Come into my enclosure
And meet my melancholy blues.                                      CHEERS,  FREDDIE, wherever you are!  J
