The Soap Tribune, Issue #009--be my Valentine
January 07, 2021
Bee my Valentine
With Valentine's Day 5 1/2 weeks away, there's plenty of time to plan ahead, to do a little something special for someone you love.
Many centuries ago, the day was connected to early, or even pre-Spring celebrations of good health for beekeepers, and when the plants and flowers start to grow. It has also been a day to celebrate the 1st day of work in the vineyards.
Over hundreds of years, these symbolic celebrations adapted to birds mating, poetry, sweets, and love.
As a symbol of these gifts from the earth and your heart, acknowledge who is special to you with a kind word and a small symbolic gift.
