The history of Valentine’s Day–and the story of its patron saint–is shrouded in mystery. We do know that February has long been celebrated as a month of romance, and that St. Valentine’s Day, as we know it today, contains vestiges of both Christian and ancient Roman tradition. But who was Saint Valentine, and how did he become associated with this ancient rite?

The Catholic Church recognizes at least three different saints named Valentine or Valentinus, all of whom were martyred. One legend contends that Valentine was a priest who served during the third century in Rome. When Emperor Claudius II decided that single men made better soldiers than those with wives and families, he outlawed marriage for young men. Valentine, realizing the injustice of the decree, defied Claudius and continued to perform marriages for young lovers in secret. When Valentine’s actions were discovered, Claudius ordered that he be put to death. Still others insist that it was Saint Valentine of Terni, a bishop, who was the true namesake of the holiday. He, too, was beheaded by Claudius II outside Rome.

Origins of Valentine’s Day: A Pagan Festival in February
While some believe that Valentine’s Day is celebrated in the middle of February to commemorate the anniversary of Valentine’s death or burial–which probably occurred around A.D. 270–others claim that the Christian church may have decided to place St. Valentine’s feast day in the middle of February in an effort to “Christianize” the pagan celebration of Lupercalia. Celebrated at the ides of February, or February 15, Lupercalia was a fertility festival dedicated to Faunus, the Roman god of agriculture, as well as to the Roman founders Romulus and Remus.

Valentine’s Day is a special day for not only couples but every person out there although some people may not like the idea of Valentine’s Day but then their numbers are few. Valentine’s Day’ is celebrated on 14th February every year. It is celebrated in the memory of martyrdom of Saint Valentine.

Initially the day was celebrated in USA and UK only but nowadays it is celebrated in many countries around the world. Several martyrdom stories were invented for the various Valentines that belonged to February 14. Generally Valentine’s Day is the main event among the chain of events that occur from February 7th and lasts about a valentine week ending with the 14th Feb, Valentine’s Day.

The Valentine week Days starts with Rose Day on 7th February then on February 8th it’s the Propose Day thereafter we witness chocolate Day on 9th February. The following day that is on 10th February it is teddy day which leads to Promise day on 11th and Hug day on 12th of February respectively.
