Valentine’s Day is the day when people show their affection for someone else, who can be sending them cards, flowers, chocolates with messages of love, among other forms of affection.

The day is named after a famous saint, but there are several stories of who he was. The popular belief about St. Valentine is that he was a priest of Rome in the third century AD.

Emperor Claudius II had forbidden marriage because he thought married men were bad soldiers. Valentine felt that this was unfair, so he broke the rules and organized weddings in secret. When Claudius discovered, Valentine was arrested and sentenced to death.

There, he fell in love with the jailer’s daughter and when he was sentenced to be killed on February 14th, he sent a signed letter to her with “from your Valentine” written on it.
