When is Valentine’s Day?
Each year Valentine’s Day is celebrated on the 14th of February. It is a celebration for one of the Christian martyrs called Saint Valentine. He was a priest in Rome who was martyred on this day in the year 269 and was recognized as a saint by Pope Gelasius in the year 496. Not much is known for Saint Valentine, but the legend says that he was in love with his jailer’s daughter and the day before his execution he wrote her a letter signed with “Your Valentine”. In the Eastern Orthodox Church, the holiday is celebrated on July 6th.

Why do we celebrate Valentine’s Day?
There are a few legends associated with the holiday and its martyr Saint Valentine. One of these legends states that he was a Christian priest who officiated weddings for couples who weren’t allowed to be marries. Hence, that’s where the celebration of love comes from. Other legend says that he was a healer, who healed his jailer’s daughter from blindness. He fell in love with her and wrote her a letter the day before his execution. He signed the letter with “Your Valentine”. That is where the well known term comes from. The last legend says that Saint Valentine offered soldiers and persecuted Christians hearts, cut out from parchment. And that is where the wide spread use of hearts for the holiday comes from.
