Happy Valentine’s Day – Owl and Mouse 24

14th February 2020 – Tradition Dictates. 24th in the Owl and Mouse series.

Over on Weekly Prompts GC and I don’t normally set a Friday Challenge, today, however, being a special day, we published a one-off, a Valentine Day Special and the word is SPECIAL.

In Saxon England and after, on St. Valentine’s day it was customary for a boy to give the girl of his choice a love token.  It was the general custom to give presents on St. Valentine’s eve and packages containing all kinds of gifts were laid on doorsteps. They were anonymous and usually just bore the message “a Good-morrow to you Valentine.” In other words “Happy Valentine’s Day!” And should only be said to someone special.

Today, Owl explains to Mouse how tradition dictates to whom we should utter the words “Happy Valentine’s Day!”

“There is no creation without tradition; the ‘new’ is an inflection on a preceding form;  novelty is always a variation on the past!” ― Carlos Fuentes.
