St. Valentine's Day Contest!  

Posted by Jude Emblem

Greetings TradCats! In light of the upcoming feast of St. Valentine (and the lack of recent articles) we are going to host our second article contest and first of this year. The theme for this contest is, you guessed it, St. Valentines Day! There is so much to talk about with this one subject that it should be rather easy to think of something to share. i.e. Why doesn't anyone say Happy St. Valentine's Day like they do for St. Patrick? What is the modern view of love and why is it wrong? Who is St. Valentine? What is the origin of giving/receiving valentine cards? etc. The deadline for the contest will be St. Valentines Day, February 14th, 2010. All articles will be reviewed by a panel of judges in funny white wigs. The winner of the contest shall receive bragging rights and a spiritual bouquet of 15 decades of the rosary (like I said before, I'm a poor college student). God bless you all and may St. Valentine guide your key strokes!

Oh, St. Valentine's Day is nice, but I really prefer White Day. Read about it here. Though there isn't any St. White for March 14, the Church can surely commemorate a holy individual on that day in the future.

White Day? Sounds racist... =P

Thanks Atobe! I like the Japanese tradition better. It gives guys a heads up before going all out and buying stuff! I wish I had known this before the last school newspaper deadline. I'll still have time to promote White Day though. =)

Oh ho ho, I wouldn't call it a tradition! More like, the best holiday ever invented by a conglomerate.

Yeah, whatever happened to the V-day contest? I just thought of something yesterday, but I wasn't gonna post it since I thought it was over...oh well, I'll just post it anyways...

Well I COULD have emailed everyone to remind them of the blog and the fact that their name is still attached to the side, but I didn't and the only person to post a St. Valentine's Day related article was Glo. Yes, I didn't write mine either and I should have even though I saw no one else was. Atobe came in close second with the comment about White Day.
