Valentine’s Day (February 14)
Valentine’s Day has a significant history. It commemorates the sacrifice of Saint Valentine, a Christian martyr. According to history, in A.D. 270, Roman Emperor Claudius prohibited young men from marrying, believing that bachelors made better soldiers. However, Valentine defied this decree, promoting love among young couples. Influenced by his teachings, even Claudius’s daughter fell in love with someone. Enraged, the emperor executed Valentine on February 14th. Two decades after his death, in A.D. 496, Pope Gelasius declared the day of his execution as “Lovers’ Day” in his memory. Though opinions on Valentine’s Day vary, many believe this narrative.
