Look back the Valentine’s Day origin – a day of romance
St. Valentine celebrated secret weddings for couples
Valentine was one of the Catholic priests under Claudius II Roman Emperor. At that time, the Roman Empire had to join in many battles, but it was not received any support from the people. That’s why the Emperor forced a large number of young men to enter the army. Claudius II thought that because of love, the young men didn’t want to leave their home. So, he made up his mind to avoid celebrating weddings.
However, Valentine together with Saint Marius opposed the decree of Claudius II. They celebrated the weddings secretly. When discovering, Valentine was condemned to death. Gradually, February 14th is chosen a date in such a way that couples hand over their love messages. People often send love poems or traditional gifts.
