Valentine’s Day is celebrated every year on February 14th. Traditionally gifts, candy, and flowers are exchanged in honor of Saint Valentine. February has long be regarded as the month of romance. There are many legends that tell the story of the origin on this holiday. The common theme behind the Valentine legends is the appeal St. Valentine had as a sympathetic, yet heroic, and more importantly, romantic figure. Thanks to this reputation, Valentine had become one of the most popular saints in England and France.
Valentine’s Day greetings became popular in the Middle Ages, though they did not appear in written form until after 1400. The oldest Valentine in existence is a poem written by Charles the Duke of Orleans. By the middle of the 18th century, it was custom to give and receive small presents and handwritten notes. By the 1900s printed cards were starting to replace the handwritten notes.
Today you can expect to receive a Valentine’s Day card, flowers, or chocolates on the holiday that expresses our romantic feelings for another.
