History and significance of the Valentine's Day
Lovebirds across the globe celebrate Valentine’s Day with their loving partners, express their full love towards them, and tell them how special they are to them.
The very inception of Valentine’s Day
Valentine's Day has been celebrated since the time of the mighty Roman Empire. We the people of this century may be awe struck how it can be dated back so many years. It is really long enough for humankind to try hard to make it perfect and make it the love- holiday that it is today! I hope, nobody knows the exact origin of the great Valentine's Day. According to history the most popular theory that is attributed with the celebration of the day is associated with none other than St. Valentine, a Roman priest.
The Catholic Church has now given recognition to two different martyred Saint Valentines who own many similarities, making it really difficult to identify the real-life man behind the vibrant holiday. Both Valentines were martyred in the 3rd century by Roman Emperor Claudius. Both of them were believed to have died on February 14th, although there are debates regarding the years of their martyrdom.
It is widely assumed, however, that the day is observed to honor Saint Valentine of Terni, who was brutally assassinated by Roman Emperor Claudius II. He was a priest and it is presumed that he is known for secretly performing Christian marriages for the Roman troops and preaching Christianity before it was declared legal.

For this very reason, he was declared complete house arrest because he refused to relinquish his faith. While he was under the very home- arrest sentence, he fell in love with the blind daughter of the jailer. Soon he was able to restore her eye sight. The whole house was spell bound, awe struck to a great extent. They began to believe that there is one thing in this universe that is absolutely true He is the Omnipotent, Omnipresent and Omniscient in the true sense of the term.
The news soon reached the emperor. Valentine was found guilty though he did a great deed. He was announced to be executed on the very February 14th. On the particular day of his execution, it is known from legends that he sent the jailer's daughter a farewell note that was thus: "From your Valentine."
Later on, the church realized the matter and sought to make this occasion a Christian celebration. They tried to repent choosing the very day just to remember St. Valentine's Day.
English Poets and Valentine’s Day
Another widely accepted story goes along with the celebration of Valentine's Day. The story is originated from the great English poet Geoffrey Chaucer, the very person to link Valentine’s Day with romance in his great poem The Parlement of Foules.
He associated the day with romantic love, imagining that that was the very time when European birds used to go for their mates. Others followed him along the same track where Love is regarded as the eternal force that guides man to the way to glory and light.
William Shakespeare, one of the greatest poets and dramatists of all times often thought about platonic love. We cannot but mention Shakespeare’s influence on Valentine’s Day because he was a kind of spokesman for the very culture on the subject of romantic love. If you try to cast a glance at some of Shakespeare’s most famous love quotes, you are sure to get an idea of how cordial he was to the modern cultural thinking about romantic love.
