Valentine’s Day – How it Came About

Valentine's Day

Each year on February 14th, many of us celebrate Valentine’s Day by exchanging cards, flowers, dinners or some sort of little gift with someone the love. Valentine’s Day is named for the martyred Christian saint named Valentine. He was a bishop of Terni (Italy) that married forbidden couples.(parents did not agree with the connection or because the bridegroom was a soldier or a slave)
