February the month for romance

Valentine revealed

1264912932single-red-roseEver wondered why February 14 has become the the date when loved ones exchange cards, flowers and gifts, all in the name of love and St Valentine?

A quick Internet search sheds some light on this popular day, revealing that:

– Valentine could have been a priest in Rome during the third century who continued to marry couples despite a decree by Emperor Claudius II that outlawed marriage for young men. When Valentine’s defiance was discovered, Claudius ordered that he be put to death.

– Valentine may have sent the first “valentine” greeting himself. While in prison, it is believed that Valentine fell in love with a young girl who visited him during his confinement. Before his death, it is alleged that he wrote her a letter, which he signed “From your Valentine”.

– In 496AD, Pope Gelasius set aside February 14 to honor St Valentine.

– Gradually, February 14 became the date for exchanging love messages and St Valentine became the patron saint of lovers.
