Yaaay! So guys, Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and of course, we all are super excited about this. The big question is:
What is Valentine?
Over the years, people have several perceptions about what valentine really represents. St. Valentine’s Day, as we know, contains traces of both Christian and ancient Roman tradition. Some give accounts of Valentine as a saint who served during the third century in Rome and was eventually martyred as a result of his refusal to stop wedding soldiers who, according to the Emperor Claudius 11, were better fighters when single than married. He secretly performed marriage for young lovers. Other stories suggest that Valentine may have been killed for attempting to help Christians escape Roman prisons where they were being tortured under harsh circumstances. He was later imprisoned and sent his first letter to the jailer’s daughter whom he had a crush on, addressing it as “from your Valentine’.
We can all agree that Valentine’s Day is no doubt, a day of love, romance and affection. It is described as “lover’s day’. A day that each person spends with someone that is special in their life.
