This year, Friday, February 14th is Valentine’s Day: the day of love.images Valentine’s Day is also known as Saint Valentine’s Day or The Feast of Saint Valentine. The special day of Saint Valentine’s Day began as a celebration of one or more early Christian Saints named, Valentinus. Saint Valentine was imprisoned for performing weddings for soldiers who were forbidden from marrying and ministering to Christians who were persecuted under the Roman Empire. He was said to have healed the daughter of a jailer, and before he was executed he wrote to her, “Your Valentine.” This is a day to show love and affection toward significant others. On Valentine’s Day, people give cards, flowers, and gifts to their loved ones. Valentine’s Day is celebrated around the world, in several different countries. On the night of February 14th, it’s common for many people to go out on a date with their loved one.  Popular symbols associated with Valentine’s Day are roses, a flying baby who shoots love arrows into people’s hearts, Cupid. Little candy hearts with affectionate messages on them like “be mine” and “kiss me,” are often given out on this day. Valentine’s day is celebrated in many different ways, but the celebration of love for one another stays the same. Happy Valentine’s Day!
