The cunning linguists amongst you will have realised
that St Valentine was actually an Italian…..
…..and that’s about all that’s known about him ! …..
…..The Roman Catholic Church has delisted him as
an official Saint…..
…..and the French have (mis) appropriated him in the
‘La Fete du Baiser’ (the festival of kissing) that is
celebrated on the first Saturday after the 14th
In the French version men and women dress up as
priests and nuns and go around kissing each other
as well as strangers…..
…..a case of theatre reflecting life ! ! ! ! !
The G-man is (self) indulging in full immersion therapy
in La Dolce Vita but can’t help noticing that the Italians
have gone Valentine-mad…..
…..every shop window is red with hearts
Now I can understand why this might work in an
underwear shop (Intimissimi)…..
…..or perhaps a sparkly shop (Swarovski)…..
…..but you won’t win many…
