Origin of Valentine's Day

Posted by Nina Robinson at Sunday, January 30, 2011 0 comments
Valentine's Day is coming soon. Valentine's Day is celebrated on February 14, every year. I researched the origin of Valentine's Day and why we celebrate it today.
 The day was originally named Saint Valentine's Day, to celebrate love and companionship through gift giving, flowers,greeting cards, chocolate, dinner for two and special time alone with their significant other.  The actual day chosen to celebrate really doesn't  have a significance to the story and no one knows why the day was chosen to be celebrated every year. Some believe that the day is celebrated in the middle of February as a reminder of Valentine's death. The special commerative day was named after a Christian man named Valentine, who was executed because he wouldn't convert from Christianity to Catholicism. He was jailed and right before his execution, he had written his first love letter and it was signed, "From your Valentine."

What does Valentine's Day mean to you and your significant other ?

Disneyland Self-Esteem Booster

Posted by Nina Robinson at Saturday, January 08, 2011 0 comments
  No, everyone can not afford to take their children to Disneyland and receive special services Disney offers. We as a community need to pull together to start an outreach or join outreaches throughout the world. Such as, Girls Rule! , Black Girls Rock, Big Brother and Big Sister, or the Salvation Army where there are many children who come to the Organization everyday for social service needs. We have children who need self-esteem reassurance and purpose embedded deep inside of them. It just takes someone special to take the lead and create a Disneyland in their community.
 Disney has a fan page that many can share stories about their self-esteem boost experience at Disneyland. I enjoyed reading this story because many young girls today are feeling like they're not beautiful, which creates low self esteem and lack hope. I would like to give Disney kudos for celebrating our young girls and giving them a sense of hope with their makeover boutiques at Disneyland. Disneyland makes girls dream of being or becoming Princesses for the rest of their lives. That's why it's not uncommon for many to wed at Disneyland because of their dreams of becoming a true princess for a day.
