Every 14th of February we celebrate Valentine’s Day or the Feast of Saint Valentine. Ever wondered how this celebration started? Legend says Saint Valentine is a rebel who performs secret weddings to soldiers who were forbidden to marry. This is when Emperor Claudius II outlawed marriage for young men due to his belief that single men are better soldiers than those with families and wives. Sounds awful, right? However, as a result, Saint Valentine was persecuted, imprisoned, and then later on executed. The highlight of his story happened during his imprisonment where he healed Asterius, the daughter of his jailer and wrote her a farewell letter. At the end of the love letter, “Your Valentine” was written on it, thus the name of the festivity.
This romantic gesture stirs many traditions from ancient Rome and was carried on until the present day. As observed, different countries around the world shows acts of love to commemorate the event. Popular custom of showing love is through gift giving. In fact, statistics showed that this is the time of the year where greetings cards increase its sale.
