The history of valentine's day
Valentine's Day, also called Saint Valentine's Day or the Feast of Saint Valentine, is celebrated yearly on February 14. It originated as a Christian feast day honoring one or two early Christian martyrs named Saint Valentine and, thru later folk traditions, has grown to be a considerable cultural, spiritual, and business birthday celebration of romance and love in lots of areas of the arena.
The Feast of Saint Valentine changed into set up via Pope Gelasius I in AD 496 to be celebrated on February 14 in honor of Saint Valentine of Rome, who died on that date in AD 269. The day became related to romantic love within the 14th and 15th centuries whilst notions of courtly love flourished, reputedly by using affiliation with the "lovebirds" of early spring.
In 18th-century England, it grew into an event wherein couples expressed their love for each other with the aid of offering flora, supplying confectionery, and sending greeting cards (known as "valentines"). Valentine's Day symbols which are used today consist of the heart-formed define, doves, and the parent of the winged Cupid.
Since the 19th century, handwritten valentines have given manner to industrially produced greeting playing cards. In Italy, Saint Valentine's Keys are given to fans "as a romantic symbol and an invite to liberate the giver's coronary heart", in addition to children to keep off epilepsy (called Saint Valentine's Malady).
