Every year, Valentine’s Day arrives giving us an opportunity to show our love to that special one.

There are many ways to do this, but one of the most popular ways is to send/give flowers, especially red roses.  Often a card is accompanied expressing love, sometimes it is anonymous, meaning the receiver has a secret admirer.

Some history behind Valentine’s Day and who was Saint Valentine and why do we celebrate this day

Saint Valentine was a priest from Rome in the third century AD.

During this period Emperor Claudius II had banned marriage because he believed married men were distracted from being a soldier. Valentine believed this to be totally unfair,  he decided to rebel against the ruling of the Emperor, as he was a Priest he decided to arrange marriages in secret.  It was not long before the Emperor discovered what Valentine was doing and he ordered him to be thrown in jail and sentenced to death!  

Ironically during his time in jail, Valentine fell in love with the jailer’s daughter!  On the sad day he was taken to his death sentence, 14th February, he wrote his loved one a love letter and signed it “from your Valentine

Thankfully we do not have to go to such lengths for our loved ones.
