THE POSSIBLE HISTORY OF VALENTINE’S DAY

Valentine’s Day, also called Saint Valentine’s Day or the Feast of Saint Valentine, is always celebrated on February 14th. It originated as a Christian feast day honoring St. Valentine, a Christian martyr who is said to have been imprisoned in Rome for ministering to Christians in the third century. According to folk lore, St. Valentine restored sight to the blind daughter of his jailer. The legend was later embellished to proclaim he wrote a letter to the daughter signed “Your Valentine” as a farewell before he was executed.

The actual feast was established by Pope Gelasius in AD 496, to celebrate St. Valentine who was executed on February 14th. The day then became associated with romantic love in the 14th and 15th centuries. In 18th Century England, it grew into an occasion where couples expressed their love for one another by giving flowers, candy and greeting cards, today known as Valentine’s Day cards. It was during this time that “lovebirds,” heart-shapes, and Cupid became symbols of this day of amor. And this is the Valentine’s Day we now celebrate.
