Valentine’s day is the day of love. Valentine’s Day is celebrated on February 14. The day is celebrated by many countries around the world, although it is not a holiday day. Handwritten cards, chocolate hearts and red roses are easy to find at any store these days. However, much about how vacations are a mystery. The first Valentine’s Day was in the year 496! Having a particular Valentine’s Day is a very old tradition, thought to have originated from a Roman festival. The Romans had a festival called Lupercalia in the middle of February – officially the start of their springtime. The ancient Romans may also be responsible for the name of our modern day love. Emperor Claudius II executed two men – both named Valentine – on Feb. 14 of different years in the 3rd century A.D. Their martyrdom was honoured by the Catholic Church with the celebration of St. Valentine’s Day. Valentine means a loved one’s favourite or congratulations on Valentine’s Day or a gift or greeting that is sent or given specifically to a loved one on Valentine’s Day specifically like a greeting card sent on this day.
