Ahh...Valentine's Day, the holiday that began by honoring early Christian martyrs named Valentinus. Established by Pope Gelasius I in 496 AD, Valentines Day was later deleted from the General Roman Calendar of saints by Pope Paul VI in 1969.
By the 15th century, February 14th had evolved into an occasion in which lovers expressed their love for each other by presenting flowers, offering confectionery, and sending greeting cards. So, what does all this have to do with Seaworld?
Well... it seems as through there is love in the air, or in the case of this mother and child in the water.
And, this pair flamingos engage in a little heart felt necking!
Happy Valentines Day to all and thanks to our friends at Seaworld for reminding us all love is everywhere!
