Valentine's Day probably came to be as the result of a combination of three observances. The first, and most widely believed story, tells of a young Roman priest named Valentine who disobeyed the Emperor Claudius II in 200 A.D. and was imprisoned. On the eve of his execution, he wrote a letter to Asterius's daughter, whom he had fallen in love with. He signed the letter with the phrase, "From Your Valentine."
The second, an ancient Roman festival called Lupercalia was celebrated on February 15th. It was a celebration to ensure protection from wolves as well as a promise of fertility for animals and humans.
The third, an old English belief, states that February 14th is the day that birds pair off with their mates. The custom of exchanging valentines on February 14th can be traced to the English poet, Geoffrey Chaucer who wrote that birds choose their mates on February 14th.
Today, this holiday is observed by expressing loving feelings to sweethearts, husbands, wives, family and friends.
Here am I wishing everyone in the house a happy val, as my own way of sharing love. .
