What Is Valentine’s Day?

But first, what is Valentine’s Day, and who was St Valentine? 

To get it somewhat right, we’ll work with the facts we know. A saint named Valentine performed heroic acts that led to his martyrdom. It was said that he and another saint, also named Valentine, would perform illegal marriages for young couples or, some say, young soldiers who were forbidden to marry. And for that, they were both beheaded by the Romans. 

The significant date we all know, February 14, comes from a Roman holiday held every year to honor Juno, the goddess of marriage. It evolved in superstition as a day where, if you dreamed of a person, they could be your true love. 

During the 1600-1800s, Valentine’s Day was seen as a day to send a romantic letter or message to one’s beloved, and by the late 1800s, the holiday became widely commercialized. In our modern time, it’s a day to gift and spoil loved ones with candy, flowers, romantic getaways, and of course, it’s the most romantic day of the year to pop the question!
