Here’s what else you need to know for this weekend…

Valentine’s Day, also called Saint Valentine’s Day or the Feast of Saint Valentine, is an annual holiday celebrated on February 14.

Originating as a Western Christian feast day honoring one or more early saints named Valentinus, Valentine’s Day is now recognized as a significant cultural, religious, and commercial celebration of romance in many regions around the world, although it is not a public holiday.

Friday Film: Nintchka (1993). Join the North End Library for their Friday film series featuring Nintchka—a movie about a stern Russian woman sent to Paris on official business only to find herself attracted to a man who represents everything she is supposed to detest.
