Who Invented Valentine's Day?
Every year in February, there is a day specified to dedicated love to dear ones. The day is celebrated annually on February 14th and is known as Valentine's Day.
We celebrate Valentine's Day every year but have you ever wondered why and who invented it? Well, there's a very interesting story behind it. Let's take a look!
There are many stories that narrate the incidents that happened on the 14th of February. The most accountable story says that there was a Saint Valentine who was imprisoned by Emperor Claudius for officiating marriage illegally among soldiers. Emperor Claudius believed that marriage distracted soldiers from their duties. Legend says that before being executed, he wrote a letter to the daughter of his jailer, Julia, and signed it with "Your Valentine." It is believed that he was buried on 14th February and Julia planted almond and pink blossoms beside his grave as a symbol of lasting friendship and love.
Valentine's Day is also referred to as Saint Valentine's Day. In some parts of the world, it is also called Feast Saint Valentine. It originates from Christian feast day to honor one or maybe more early saints named Valentinus. This is why Valentine's Day is celebrated throughout the world as a significant religious, cultural and commercial festivity of love where people give their loved ones flowers, confectionery and greeting cards.
