Valentines Day actually began as far back as the middle ages. There is a legend that says that back in ancient days there was a Roman Emperor named Claudius II. In an effort to grow his army strong he decreed that young men should not marry. It was Claudius’ belief that married men did not make good soldiers. St. Valentine, a well-known priest in the area, allegedly performed marriages in secret to all those that so desired.
Eventually, St. Valentine and his performance of secret marriages were discovered. He was put in prison and before he was executed he wrote what is purported to be the first Valentine. St. Valentine penned a note that was addressed to his beloved and was signed, “from your Valentine.” This legend, although popularly circulated by card companies and others has no evidence--but we wholeheartedly agree that it sure does sound good.
Nowadays, Valentine’s Day is traditionally a day where lovers express their love and affection to one another, usually by way of greeting cards (known as Valentine’s) as well as candy, flowers and other gifts. Valentine’s day, quite simply is the celebration of love.
