Flowers, chocolates and stuffed animals are the most popular gifts for this unique day! As the day gets near it is easy to find all kids of heart-shaped cards, boxes, jewelry etc. But do you know the meaning or the origin of this romantic day?
St. Valentine´s Day began as a liturgical celebration of one of the early Christian saints named Valentinus: Valentine.
It is the belief that Saint Valentine of Rome was imprisoned for performing weddings for soldiers who were forbidden to marry and for ministering to Christians, who were persecuted under the Roman Empire.According to the legend, during his imprisonment, he healed the blind daughter of his jailer, Asterius. An embellishment to this story states that before his execution he wrote her a letter signed "Your Valentine" as a farewell.
February 14thbecame a day for all lovers and Valentine became its Patron Saint. It began to be annually observed by young Romans who offered handwritten greetings of affection, known as Valentines, on this day to the women they admired. With the coming of Christianity, the day came to be known as St. Valentine's Day.
Today, Valentine´s Day is one of the major holidays worldwide, the day we celebrate LOVE!
