What is the meaning of Valentine’s day? 

Who was Valentine? 

One legend of Valentine’s Day contends that the originator of this festival was a priest in third-century Rome. A soldier named Claudius came into power, and he outlawed marriage for young men who were deemed to make better soldiers because they were less tied down. Father Valentine continued to perform marriages for young lovers in secret despite the risk of his death which mercifully never arrived until years later after his sixty-sixth imprisonment when Father Valentine died peacefully on February 14th.

Although there were several Christians who were martyred named Valentine, legends surrounding the reason why Valentine’s Day exists as it does today. Some state that the priest signed a letter sent to his jailer’s daughter and that he healed her from blindness—he had befriended her. Other legends state that it is due to St. Valentine of Terni, a bishop who originated from Italy, who made similar good deeds during his lifetime to spread Christianity across the world as many other saints did during their lifetime.

Origin of Valentine’s day

Every February 14th, people everywhere tend to go crazy for Valentine’s Day. Most believe that the holiday is to honor a saint from ancient Rome who lived over 2,000 years ago as well as a martyred priest by the name of Valentine. Still, some other scholars claim that the holiday started to celebrate two Roman gods; Faunus and Lupercus – both of which were symbols of fertility and peace. The celebration date of Lupercalia was held on the ides of February, or February 15.

February the Month of Romance

Month of Romance

There are many different ways to celebrate 14 February, a special day. For example, one can make chocolates with their loved ones or give flowers and other gifts. Before the 1800s, people exchanged letters, poems, and tokens of affection such as decorations and pieces of jewelry, though the tastes at that time tended toward more elaborate gestures than those expressed in today’s post-Valentine’s Day wave of Hallmark cards. The history of Valentine’s around the world is rich with traditions for this beloved holiday.

On the one hand, romantics say that Valentine’s Day is about spreading love, but it can also be about dealing with those people who just want attention and make things difficult for you by trying to get you into trouble by somehow convincing you to do what they want. I guess their way of showing love.
