Lame Valentine's Day story (using Paint)

Ah, Valentine’s Day. There’s a romantic story to the celebration of this day and I’m so gonna tell you. =p

One self endangering, brave fool made history by defying a rotten Emperor’s law.


& The ever cacat Romans

The Roman Emperor Claudius II created a rule that banned young men from marrying because he believed marriage made men soft. And he desired to grow his army, so he issued this decree to keep men from marrying their sweethearts.

St. Valentine, a priest, refused to abide by this law and in secret, he conducted marriage ceremonies for the young men.

As usual, news had it's way of getting around...

Claudius found out about it and had Valentine thrown in jail.

The End
