ABC Letter F: Fruit of love, Flowers and food

Valentine's Day

Spent the morning teaching that St Valentine is not just about love love love.
Saint Valentine was a Roman Catholic priest who was martyred for his belief. St. Valentine was imprisoned beheaded & buried on 14 Feb 269 AD for helping persecuted Christians & marrying Christian couples! While in prison he prayed for his jailer’s daughter & her blindness was healed. On the day of his execution he left her a note signed, ‘Your Valentine.’

Tomatoes. Fruit of love.
The French call it 'pomme d'amour' (love apple), Italian 'pomodoro' (golden apple), the Aztecs 'tomatl', but in English, it is simply tomato.
