As we have seen in St Valentines Day symbols pairing birds in February were associated with the St. Valentine's Day traditions of young men & women pairing up.

 

However, a St Valentines Day Myth evolved whereby on St Valentines Day, if a young girl saw a particular bird then she would marry a particular type of man !

St Valentines Day Myth rarely became fact but a lot of fun was had by all !!

So for the ladies on St Valentines Day, the following birds held a wide spectrum of choice !

Blackbird... A man of the cloth (Priest)
Bluebird... A man of laughter
Crossbill... A man of argument
Dove... A man of kindness
Goldfinch... A man of wealth
Robin... A man of the sea
Sparrow... A man of the country
Woodpecker... No man !!!
Yellow Hammer... A man of wealth
Yellow Wagtail... A man of wealth

Another St Valentines Day Myth says that if a young girl sees a hen and a cockerel together on St Valentines Day then she will marry soon. Needless to say, farms were popular places amongst young girls on St Valentines Day !!

Once thing that is not a St Valentines Day Myth is the joy that St Valentines Day has brought to millions of lovers, husbands & wives the world over & throughout the centuries.
