Happy Valentine's Day, everyone!!!! ♥
All over the world, couples and friends celebrate Valentine's Day today, but who was this Valentine, and why do we celebrate him?
St. Valentine is believed to be a priest that helped Christian couples get married in secret during the reign of Roman Emperor Claudius II, who believed that single men were better and more dedicated soldiers.
St. Valentine opposed this and helped men marry secretly. When he was found out, the emperor ordered him beheaded, and this happened on February 14th in 270 AD.
While it is a widely spread tradition that men bring their significant other flowers and chocolates or other little gifts on this day, there are no set traditions or rules, when it comes to celebrating Valentine's Day. Some couples go out to dinner, some stay home and spend some quality time together, which for most is what this day is all about.
Happy Valentine's Day! ♥
