    - St. Valentine's Day celebrates the feasts of two Christian martyrs of this name. One, a priest and physician, was beaten and beheaded on the Flaminan Way at Rome, Italy, Feb 14, AD 269, during the reign of Emperor Claudius II. Another Valentine, the bishop of Terni, is said to have been beheaded, also on the Flaminian Way at Rome, Feb 14 (possibly in a later year). Both history and legend are vague and contradictory about details of the Valentines, and some say that Feb 14 was selected for the celebration of Christian martyrs as a diversion from the ancient pagan observance of Lupercalia. An old legend has it that birds choose their mates on Valentine's Day. Now it is one of the most widely observed unofficial holidays. It is an occasion for the exchange of gifts (usually books, flowers, or sweets) and greeting cards with affectionate or humorous messages.

With the adoption of the Monday Holiday Law (which moved the observance of George Washington's birthday from Feb 22 to the third Monday in February), some of the specific significance of the event was lost and added impetus was given to the popular description of that holiday as President's Day as a day to honor all former presidents of the US, though the federal holiday is still Washington's Birthday. Annually, the third Monday in February.

    THE COLD WINTER MONTHS
    U.S. Cellular hosting free Device Workshop to show you how to use your phone to the fullest

    ROCKY MOUNT, Va (Feb. 05, 2016) --- Being stuck inside while it is bitterly cold or snowy can be rough for people of all ages. But as long as you have a smartphone or tablet, blizzards, cold conditions or ice storms don’t have to derail the entire day. U.S. Cellular is hosting a free Device Workshop in Rocky Mount to show you the many ways your wireless device can keep the entire family entertained even when the weather outside keeps you indoors. The workshop is open to everyone, and you don’t need to be a U.S. Cellular customer to attend.

    “Whether you want to learn something new or be entertained, the right apps and our high-quality network that works when and where you need it will help you stay connected on a cold and snowy day,” said Nathan Waddell, director of sales for U.S. Cellular in the Mid-South.

    The free Device Workshop is being held at the Rocky Mount U.S. Cellular store at 832 Tanyard Road on Thursday, February 18 at 8:00am. According to a recent U.S. Cellular survey¹, 94 percent of people use their phone to keep themselves entertained, 89 percent use it to stay up-to-date with the latest news and 79 percent use it to play or download music. U.S. Cellular associates will be on hand to show attendees how to use these features and explain the many advantages smartphones have to offer.
