The fact behind celebrating the Valentine Day is quite dramatic. Its origin can be traced from IIIrd century Rome. Although, there are many stories behind the birth of Valentine’s Day, popular belief is that this day is celebrated in the name of St. Valentine, who was a Christian Martyr.
St. Valentine was a priest from Rome who lived during the tyrannical ruler named Emperor Claudius II. It has believed that Emperor Claudius banned the young men’s marriages because he thought that married men become weak during wartime. St. Valentine secretly began to arrange marriages to all lovers where he performed all rituals. When Claudius II came to know about the plight, he executed St. Valentine with two friends.
When St. Valentine was in jail, before the execution, he fell in love with the blind daughter of Jailer - who visited him during his confinement. And, before he was taken to death he wrote a letter to a girl and signed it as “from your Valentine” and till today the lovers address each other as Valentine. One day after his death on February 14, Julia the girl planted an almond tree near the St. Valentine grave and till today almond is a sign of love and friendship.
Since then the custom of sending anonymous love letter or cards to lovers have become the prominent way to celebrate Valentine Day. Every year, the city of Verona, where Shakespeare’s lovebirds Romeo and Juliet lived, received thousands of love letters. People across the world celebrate 14th February with exchanging gifts and flowers with their loved ones.
