Origins of Valentine's Day

This day takes its name from Saint Valentine, a Christian priest martyred in the 3rd century. Several legends surround Saint Valentine's life, but the most common suggests that he married couples in secret despite the Roman Emperor Claudius II's ban.

Today, Valentine's Day is widely considered a special occasion to express one's romantic feelings towards one's partner. Couples exchange greeting cards, gifts, flowers and share romantic moments such as candlelit dinners. Classic Valentine's Day symbols include hearts, arrows, red roses and Cupid, the Roman god of love.

Ultimately, Valentine's Day represents a day dedicated to affection, tenderness and the recognition of romantic relationships, whether budding or already well established.
