Let’s look back to understand the historical significance of this beautiful day.
The prosperous day is named after the Catholic priest named St. Valentine. It was around the 3rd century when many people were turning into Christians in Rome. Rome was, then, ruled by Claudius II, a pagan. He made strict laws and regulations depicting what the Christians should do. According to him, the Roman soldiers were restricted to devote their entire life for the city. They were even debarred from marrying. It was at this time when St. Valentines gained popularity as he started to marry the soldiers secretly. Finally, he was caught and sent to jail. He had a deep concern for the fellow prisoners and the blind daughter of the jailor.
According to the legend, Valentines cured her blindness and before execution, he wrote love messages to her signing ‘From your Valentine.’ On 14th February 270, he was executed. Around 200 years later, Rome turned into Christianity, and the Emperor decided to throw out the remaining pagan. Pope declined the pagan fertility ritual, and 14th of February was proclaimed as St. Valentine’s day.
