I have absolutely nothing to say today, so I thought I’d treat you to some Regency pictures in honor of St. Valentine’s Day.

All these pictures are from http://www.pemberley.com/janeinfo/rgnclfil.html
a site that will occupy you for hours.

How might our Regency Lady and Gentleman, budding lovers, occupy themselves on St. Valentine’s Day?

Maybe they will go up in a balloon

Or go ice skating

Maybe they will attend a ball and dance.

Or be very naughty and play some parlor games.

Our Regency Lady and Gentleman have great passion for each other, so they must share a lovely kiss.

And, last of all, maybe all this Valentine’s day activity will lead to a hasty trip to Gretna Green!

If I lived in the Regency, I would probably be too repressed for the parlor game and much too scared for the balloon ride. I’d be too cold ice skating, so that leaves me to dance! (And to dream of a kiss like the lovely one depicted here…and maybe an elopement to Gretna Green)

If you lived in the Regency, how would you like to spend your Valentine’s Day?

May all your days be filled with love,
