Valentine’s day is celebrated every year on February 14th. It’s popularly the day in which couples give each other presents to celebrate their love. In some countries, the celebration has been broadened to include friendship.
According to the BBC “the day gets its name from a famous saint, but there are several stories of who he was. The popular belief about St Valentine is that he was a priest from Rome in the third century AD. Emperor Claudius II had banned marriage because he thought married men were bad soldiers. Valentine felt this was unfair, so he broke the rules and arranged marriages in secret.
When Claudius found out, Valentine was thrown in jail and sentenced to death. There, he fell in love with the jailer’s daughter and when he was taken to be killed on 14 February he sent her a love letter signed „from your Valentine”.”
