Shakespeare said ‘If music be the food of love, play on’ and so played the Beatles Love love me do ,,,You know I love you ,,, . As a matter of fact several of the Beatle songs epitomized love during the 60s & 70s. Valentine Week is beginning.
For instance, these were simple times when there were no mobile phones to profess your love by sending a WA, emojis , songs, text messages or even calling that special someone to share your feelings .
Further, We still listen to some of these beautiful Beatles melodies . Did you ever wonder why ?
Love is simple and the Beatles made it just that. Simple lyrics and simple melodies. Yet, it is the most powerful emotion experienced by an individual. As we head into the Valentine Week, let us unwind and enjoy some of the truly wonderful and joyous moments in life.
It is Valentine Week from the 7th to the 14th of February
Above all,Valentines’ Day is celebrated annually on the 14th of February. While there are a number of stories associated with this legend, an 18th century legend has it that Saint Valentine wrote a letter to the jailers’s daughter he loved dearly and signed it as “your Valentine” prior to his execution on the 14th of February. Hence , The day is celebrated as Valentine.’s Day.
The Feast of Saint Valentine was established by Pope Gelasius I in AD 496 to be celebrated on February 14 in honour of Saint Valentine of Rome, who died on that date in AD 269 (WIKI)
