Today is known as Valentine’s Day – a day when we’re encouraged to celebrate all things pertaining to romance and love. Newsagents and florists love the financial boost they get. Red hearts abound. Grocery stores sell lots of chocolate. Tradition tells us that the day is named after a third century Catholic priest, who was martyred on this day. And there are ominous signs that true romance, celebrated on this day, is also on its deathbed.
