Valentine's Day has a long history, dating back to 500 A.D. as an annual celebration of love and affection. While sometimes viewed as a "Hallmark Holiday," it doesn't have to be. In other words:
"There are exactly as many special occasions in life as we choose to celebrate." - Robert Brault

We're halfway through January, which means that some of you are a couple of weeks into your New Year's Resolutions for 2011. Did you know that the tradition of making New Year's Resolutions dates back to 153 B.C.? The Romans named the first month of the year after Janus, the god of beginnings and the guardian of doors and entrances. Janus is depicted with two faces, one on the front of his head and one on the back: he could look backward and forward at the same time! At midnight on December 31, the Romans imagined Janus looking back at the old year and forward to the new.
What have you resolved to do in 2011? Whatever it is, we'd love for you to jump for your resolution! You can send your photo and "jump because" to us at email@example.com. Thanks, and we wish you all well in 2011.
Janus could look backward and forward at the same time. That's something to jump for!
