Origin of Valentine’s Day
There are plenty versions on how Valentine’s Day started. The most known version dates way back during the 270 AD the days of the Roman Empire. Emperor Claudius II of the Roman Empire highly discouraged the marriage of young men during the time of war. Apparently, he believed that single men made the best soldiers however bishop valentine still of the Roman Empire did not agree to this and he therefore performed secret marriage behind the back of the emperor. The emperor later realized the secret marriage ceremonies being performed by the bishop and he ordered the arrest of the bishop. The bishop was sentenced to death. While in prison, bishop valentine fell in love with the jailor’s daughter. He was to be executed on February the 14th. Just before he was executed he sent the jailor’s daughter a note which he signed- ‘from your valentine’. This phrase is still widely used to date. Pope Gelasius made February 14th official by setting it aside to honor St Valentine. The fun tradition of Valentine’s Day or as other call it the couple’s day started.
