Valentine's Day Story

The story of Valentine's Day came from the two saints who were honored on February 14th, when the first saint lived in Rome, and the other saint lived in The City of Torney. The pagan Romans also celebrated the day as they marked the holiday of the spring, which expressed the concept of divine love by offering the eucharist to the gods on 14 February in Rome. In the 3rd century AD.


For Christians, Valentine's Day appeared about the saints named Valentin, who lived in the early Middle Ages, a saint who lived in Torney, where he was killed during the reign of Emperor Orléans because of the persecution of Christians at that time. Although Valentine's Day is celebrated about these two saints, their lives have no romance.

The story of Saint Valentine, who lived in Rome and who was killed in 269 AD, was persecuted for converting to Christianity, where the Roman Emperor Claudius II summoned Saint Valentine and discussed together, as the emperor admired Saint Valentine and tried to convince him to abandon Christianity. He entered the pagan religion but refused, and tried to persuade the emperor to enter the Christian religion, so he was executed.

The story began when Pastor Valentin rejected a law that was not officially ratified, where Emperor Claudius II issued a decree prohibiting young people from marrying, but many accounts assumed that he had passed this law to increase the number of his army members, because he believed that the men, Married people cannot be competent soldiers, so that soldiers do not get caught up in war. The Emperor rejected Pastor Valentin and ordered his arrest and placed him in prison.




According to the reports, Saint Valentine wrote his first "Valentine's Day Card" himself to carry out his execution, and is said to have loved the jailer's daughter, who was blind and worked to heal her and Valentine sent her a short message and signed it to her, saying, "Who is loyal to you Valentine." The execution was carried out on February 14, 269. Therefore, it has been called "Saint", and from that day this day became linked to the concept of love, love, and loyalty to Saint Valentine, who redeemed his religion in his spirit, and became the usual kind of exchange of red roses, cards containing images of Cupid, and in the form of a child with two wings with a bow and a young man. Québec was considered the god of love by the Roman, and they worshipped him without God!

Valentine's Day, or "St. Valentine's Day", is one of the world's 14th-anniversary celebrations each year. Especially in English-language countries, this is one of the symbolic days in which lovers express their love by offering red roses as well as candy and holiday cards.

This day is also closely linked to romance, love, and love; medieval writers have created to express their love on this day.

On this day, cards in the form of an angel of love or the so-called "cupid" are exchanged, in the form of a heart, or in the form of a pigeon, so the exchange of cards has spread significantly in Britain in the 9th century, as well as in America. Statistics from the U.S. Greeting Card Publishers Trade Association show that 1 billion cards are traded on Valentine's Day worldwide, making Valentine's Day the second place for the number of cards traded in the world after Christmas.
