Where does Valentine’s Day come from?
It originated as a Christian holiday celebrating one of the early saints called Valentinus. One of the stories associated with this holiday tells the story of Saint Valentine from Rome and his imprisonment. He was imprisoned for officiating weddings for soldiers who weren’t allowed to get married. The legend says that the Saint restored the eyesight of his judge’s daughter. After which he wrote her a farewell letter before his execution, signing it “Your Valentine”. Hence, the often used phrase.
When it comes to the traditions of the holiday, it is believed that they originated in the 18-century England. That is the time when men started courting their objects of affection. They started presenting them with flowers, love letters and greeting cards, now known as valentines. Which is why, the holiday implies all the same things to be done for your special someone.
