Valentine’s Day, celebrated annually on February 14th is the official lovers’ holiday. This sweetheart holiday is marked by giving and receiving cards, flowers, chocolates and jewelry.
Valentine’s Day is that special time of year when red and pink colored heart decorations adorn stores and schools and offices, and Valentine cards are delivered with fondness and love.
Valentine’s Day lore suggests that this lovers’ holiday was first set in motion as a tribute to St. Valentine, a Catholic Bishop who lived in Rome during the 5th Century and was notoriously beheaded for his commitment to love.
St. Valentine’s life story reads like a Greek tragedy. He served during the reign of the Roman Emperor Claudius, who believed that married soldiers were unsuitable for military duty, and banned marriage outright.
Valentine, a love activist at heart, defied his Emperor and embarked on a crusade of conducting secret marriages. Claudius learned of Valentine’s subversion and had him jailed.
While in jail, he fell in love with a blind woman who was the daughter of the jail warden. During this period, she was blessed by Valentine’s ultimate gift love, and was given the gift of sight.
It was widely held that his love for her healed her blindness. Upon learning of this, Claudius ordered his execution. Before his death sentence was carried out, Valentine wrote a farewell message to his beloved, which he concluded with the inscription, “from your Valentine.” Years later by Church decree, Valentine was named the Patron Saint of Love.
